Harry F. Jordan (1940 - 2002)


October 2002

It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Professor Harry Jordan on Sunday, October 13, 2002. On behalf of Harry's many friends and colleagues in the Computer Science Department, Chair Clayton Lewis issued the following statement:

Harry Jordan

Harry Jordan, a member of our faculty since the founding of the department, passed away on October 13, after a long and courageous battle with kidney failure. Harry played an important role in establishing Computer Science at CU, and was a loyal and active colleague for us in CS as well as for the members of his home department, Electrical and Computer Engineering. A highlight of his recent research was his role in creating the first-ever all optical computer. All who had the chance to work with Harry will sorely miss his warm smile and incisive judgements.
