A memorial tribute to Sol Shulman, emeritus professor of chemistry, will be held on Sunday, Jan. 23, from 2-3:30 p.m. in room 116 of the Illinois State University Alumni Center. The event is open to all University and local community members.
Shulman, a former chair of Illinois State’s Department of Chemistry, passed away in December 2010 at the age of 81. After retiring in 1992, Shulman worked as a consultant on the design and construction of Illinois State’s Science Laboratory Building and designed and developed a see-through fume hood for the building’s laboratories. Shulman’s dedication to Illinois State was recognized in 2008 with the dedication of the Dr. Sol Shulman Atrium in the Science Laboratory Building. A scholarship in the Department of Chemistry also bears his name.
