SoHE is sad to hear of the passing of textile science Emeritus Professor Manfred Wentz. He made an impact on the lives of his students and the community as a whole. We send our sincerest condolences to Professor Wentz's family and friends. A former student shared a few words with us, "Dr. Manfred Wentz was a textile science professor in FRCS from about 1974 - 1985. I had him as an instructor and I worked professionally with him on various projects over the past three decades (professional societies, international standards, and projects trying to find alternative cleaning technologies to replace PERC a dry cleaning fluid). He was a very smart man, direct, to the point, and got things done. He was born and educated in Germany (Holstein Institute). He eventually came to the US and received a PH.D. from North Carolina State University. He inspired his students, was a dynamic instructor, and was there to offer lots of guidance to those considering graduate school. He was a very good man. He also taught me all of the processes and chemicals used to make German pretzels.:-) Manfred is another great example of the faculty at the UW; and the students at FRCS were fortunate to have him as their professor." http://brown-wynne-cary.tributes.com/dignitymemorial/obituary/Manfred-Wentz-103660323

Preschoolers and tigers and deans, oh my! Part of my morning today was spent with UW School of Medicine and Public Health Dean Dr Bob Golden reading to preschoolers at the UW-Madison School of Human Ecology's Preschool Lab. It was an attentive and engaged audience! Thanks to SoHE Dean Soyeon Shim for inviting us! It was fantastic to see such a impressive facility with an equally impressive staff. (And whence tigers? The two books I chose to bring both featured tigers, Close Your Eyes by Kate Banks and Leo the Late Bloomer by Robert Krause. 🐯)
