I just found out that professor Paul Wright, who taught me the Introduction to Transportation Engineering course at Georgia Tech, passed away.
The transportation professoriate has a lost a number of giants in the past two years:
- David Forkenbrock of Iowa,
- Ed Sullivan of Cal-Poly San Luis Obispo,
- Ryuichi Kitamura of Kyoto and Davis,
- Reg Golledge of UCSB,
- Charles Lave of Irvine, and
- Tom Maze of Iowa State.
