4 faculty granted emeritus status by Regents

Four faculty members were given the emeritus title by the Regents at their December meeting.

Frederick W. Bertolaet, professor of education

Bertolaet, who joined the education faculty in 1966, served as assistant dean of the School of Education in 1972--73 and as associate dean in 1973--79. He taught courses in educational administration and supervision and worked extensively with graduate students on their doctoral research.

He was director of the Detroit High School Study in 1966--68; chaired the Program in Educational Administration and Supervision in 1970--72; served as project director of the EPDA Administrative Training Program with the Detroit public schools in 1971--74; and co-directed the National Program for the Study of Collective Negotiations in Education in 1972--78.

Francis D. Bundra, professor of music (viola)

Bundra came to the U-M as a visiting lecturer in music in 1965 and was named professor in 1970. He began his teaching career in the public schools in Camden, N.J., in 1950--52, and gave lessons in Philadelphia in 1952--53.

In 1954--63 he taught in the public schools in Rochester, N.Y., while completing his master's degree in music and performer's certificate at the Eastman School of Music and performing as violist in the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. He taught violin and chamber music at the Interlochen Arts Academy and its summer National Music Camp in 1963--65.

Stanley M. Garn, professor of anthropoogy and of nutrition and fellow in the Center for Human Growth and Development

Garn, who joined the U-M in 1968, is "an internationally recognized authority in many areas of human development and has made many important contributions to the study of growth of low-birth-weight infants, the relation of genetics to tooth development, nutrition in human growth and development, and osteoporosis and aging," the Regents said.

"Prof. Garn's prestigious honors and awards include membership in the National Academy of Sciences, fellowship in the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U-M's Distinguished Faculty Achievement Award. However, his two greatest achievements may be his unusual record of research publications and his having supervised more than 40 Ph.D. students who have gone on to illustrious careers of their own."

Richard L. Malvin, professor of physiology

Malvin, who joined the U-M in 1956, is "a renal physiologist of distinction and one of the originators of the stop-flow technique, a method of localizing function in nephrons," the Regents noted. "Although he has been active in many areas of renal physiology, he is best known for his work on the role of renin and angiotensin. He found that there are multiple forms of renin and demonstrated the central nervous system action of angiotensin. He has contributed significantly to the study of the relation of renin and angiotensin to hypertension.

"In addition to research and teaching," the Regents noted, "he has been active on UM and national committees and has served on the editorial boards of scientific journals."
