Memorial for the Late Glenn Seaborg Set for March 27 in Zellerbach Auditorium

Posted March 17, 1999

The public is invited to participate in a celebration of the life of scientist Glenn T. Seaborg, Nobel laureate and acknowledged father of the nuclear age, who died on Feb. 25 at age 86.

The memorial event will take place Saturday, March 27, beginning at 2 p.m., in Zellerbach Auditorium. It will be preceded by a "circle of sharing" at which personal memories of Seaborg can be shared informally. The circle will assemble at noon in the Kerr Lounge of Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union.

Family, friends and colleagues will gather to reflect on the contributions and achievements of Seaborg, whose illustrious career included tenures as professor and chancellor, chair of the Atomic Energy Commission and advisor to 10 U.S. presidents, national crusader for excellence in science education and internationally renowned nuclear chemist who discovered 10 atomic elements -- among them plutonium -- and more than 100 radioisotopes.

Representatives from the University of California, Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the Lawrence Hall of Science and the old Atomic Energy Commission will be among those reminiscing about Seaborg's life and legacy.

The Seaborg family has requested that donations be sent to the Lawrence Hall of Science or to the College of Chemistry (checks made payable to the UC Regents) at the following addresses: Glenn T. Seaborg Endowment, Development Office, Law-rence Hall of Science MC 5200, UC Berkeley, CA 94720-5200 (Attn: Kim Robinson); or College of Chemistry, Office of the Dean, MC1460, UC Berkeley, CA 94720-1460 (Attn: Jane Scheiber).
