The Department of Chemistry and the Yale community are saddened by the loss of Professor Donald M. Crothers, Sterling Professor of Chemistry Emeritus, who passed on March 16 after a struggle with cancer. Known for his formidable intellect, impeccable judgment, inspirational teaching and mentorship, and selfless dedication to Yale and the broader community, Crothers was a member of the faculty since 1964 and served as Chair of the Department of Chemistry for four three year terms.
