Readers Remember Their Favorite Professors

"I can at last thank you for all you've done for me," writes one alumna to her dead mentor, who transformed her from a science hater to a science teacher. "(She) taught us that hard work pays off and secures your future. What better lesson can you learn?" says another alumnus of his extremely strict math professor. "He is the person our parents hoped we would meet when they sent us off to college," writes another.

When we ran tributes on UW professors from nine alumni/authors in our last issue, we invited you to write the next page. Send us five or six paragraphs on your favorite professor and we'll run the best essays in an upcoming issue, we said. You were listening. This summer, a flood of letters, faxes and e-mail came to Columns, and a few are still trickling in months later.

What follows are submissions from all alumni who sent us tributes to teaching at the UW by our July 1st deadline. Tne names are in alphabetical order and divided into those who made the print version of the magazine and all other tributes. We urge you to browse through these files and discover the impact of teaching at the University of Washington.
