sciences and bioengineering into constructive interaction with students in engineering and to stimulate cross-disciplinary collaboration in this exciting new area of technology.
Alan is survived by his wife Janet Glotzer Michaels of Pasadena, California, whom he married in 1951; two sons (both chemical engineers), Stephen of Cambridge, Massachusetts; and James of Bedminster, Pennsylvania; and two grandchildren, Aaron and Andrew. A more active, fascinating, and fulfilling life would be difficult to imagine.
*This memorial tribute is a slightly revised version (with help from James Michaels and Allan Hoffman) of a manuscript that Alan Michaels left with his family six months before he passed away.
