Dear friends of Gene's,
We'd like to invite you to the Remembrances in Celebration of Gene Golub meeting on February 29, 2008, which would have been Gene's 76th birthday.
The memorial meeting will be held in the Ballroom of the newly renovated Old Union on Stanford Campus beginning at 2 pm.
The Program for the Remembrances event is available at:
The meeting will start with remembrances by several of Gene's many close friends. To date, we are so pleased to have confirmation from Celia Concus, Leah Friedman, Walter Gander, Alvin Golub (Gene's brother), Marvin Knopp, Jill Knuth, Victor Pereyra, Michael Saunders, and Werner Stuetzle.
After the organized speakers, who will share many wonderful stories of Gene, we will have an open mike session where you will have the opportunity to speak for a couple of minutes if you so desire.
Drinks and especially tasty snacks, as Gene would have liked it, will be served throughout the meeting.
The Symposium on Gene Golub's Legacy will be held in honor of Gene on March 1,
the day after the memorial celebration. Information about the symposium can be found at:

If you plan to attend, please register for the Remembrances event at:
This allows us to make an estimate of the expected number attending, and also to create name badges before the event. If you would like to speak during the open mike session, please indicate that on the registration form also.
Finally, we would like to display a large collection of photos, showing Gene through the years. If you have photos of Gene that you would like to share, please send a digital copy by email to Margot.
With very best wishes from the 2/29 organizing committee,
|Leah Friedman||Jim Lambers||Walter Murray||Margot Gerritsen|
Detailed walking directions on-campus : If you walk from the Bookstore and White Plaza fountain toward the Old Union, you'll see a building on the left labeled "Clubhouse". It's part of the Old Union complex, but is detached from the main building. We will be in the Clubhouse Ballroom, half a floor above ground level, from 2 pm to 5 pm.
