Walter Lynn: Cornell Ombudsman

Walter R. Lynn, the Ombudsman for Cornell University from 1999 until his retirement earlier this year, passed away on June 6 at the age of 82. Lynn joined the Cornell faculty in 1961 and became an emeritus professor of civil and environmental engineering 1998, and served in many administrative roles, including as a faculty trustee and dean of the university faculty. Cornell President David Skorton said Lynn will be remembered as, "a man of great humor with the exceptional ability to listen and dispense sound wisdom." (Cornell Chronicle.)
