2011 Faculty and Staff Retiree Recognition Album Two  

Professor of Chemistry Bob Olsen arrived at Wabash in 1979. 

"Bob is a masterful teacher, combining beautifully organized lectures with recitation activities and a dry sense of humor," said Associate Professor of Chemistry Ann Taylor. "Bob’s diversity of interests can be seen in his course offerings [outside of chemistry], ranging from Introduction to Astronomy to the History of Science to Presidental Politics and Civil War.

"Bob loves the symphony, and he has played musical chairs with important leadership roles on campus, including chairing the Chemistry Department (four different times), Division One, the Science Building Planning Committee, the Quantitative Studies Committee, and the Indiana Academy of Science Auditing Committee."
