Three Named Honorary Alumni

Three distinguished faculty members have been named Honorary Alumni by the LAA. Those named this year are:

Briavel Holcomb, who joined the Livingston College faculty in 1972, has been a Fellow of the college ever since. From 1973 to 1982 she lived in Quad One (where her then-husband, Michael, was Residence Director). She has served on many committees of the college and chaired the curriculum committee. In Spring 1995 she coordinated the Livingston Lecture series on Urban Futures which marked the twenty-fifth anniversary of the College. Dr. Holcomb is the author of two books and numerous articles on urban redevelopment, gender and, more recently, on tourism. In 1990 she circumnavigated the globe with the University of Pittsburgh’s Semester at Sea program and in 1995-96 was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Malta in the Mediterranean. Next year she will be on sabbatical in Britain researching Millenial Landscapes–the numerous urban redevelopment schemes with which Britain is marking the new millenium.

Arnold G. Hyndman is Professor of Biological Sciences and has been Dean of Livingston College since 1994. Known to most alumni through this newsletter and the alumni magazine, most are familiar to his contributions to Livingston. He was actually the last person hired as a Livingston College faculty member, and by the time he arrived, the faculty was reorganized and he was a member of the FAS faculty. Dr. Hyndman is a neurobiologist whose research involves the study of the differentiation of neurons. His work focuses on the study of neurotrophic factors in the developing chick retina.

George Levine became chair of the Livingston College English Department in 1968, the year before the first students arrive on campus. After reorganization in 1980, he served as first chair of the FAS English Department. In 1986 he became director of the Center for the Critical Analysis of Contemporary Culture, one of the leading centers at Rutgers, a center which focuses on the Humanities. A Guggenheim, NEH and Rockefeller Foundation Fellow, he has also served on the editorial boards of eleven journals and is the author of several books and anthologies, including An Annotated Critical Bibliography of George Eliot, and Darwin and the Novelists.
