Dr. Ed Conley passed away on June 28, 2018 after prolonged illness. He was with MAE for 30 years and significantly contributed to its teaching, research, and service missions. He was the students’ favorite professor and taught classes at all levels, including the popular Mechanical Design class. It was not unusual for him to be contacted by former students to thank him for his support, enthusiasm, and influence. His research centered on experimental solid mechanics. MAE will miss him.
