    It is with great sadness that we at MIT announce the death, on Monday, October 8, of our colleague and friend, Professor Emeritus Ken Hale.

    A special set of web pages, entitled "A tribute to Ken Hale" (, were created in 1999 to celebrate Ken, in honor of his retirement and in celebration of his many decades as a brilliant researcher, inspiring teacher and advisor. We invite you to read them.

    Announcements of forthcoming memorial events will be made in this space when details are known. A fuller obituary will be sent to this list in the near future.
