(Raustein) Memorial Funds Announced

Yngve Raustein's parents have asked that donations be made to the Geilomo Children's Hospital in Geilo, Norway, where he was often treated for asthma as a child. The Norwegian Consulate said that checks should be made out to the "Norwegian Seamen's Church in memory of Yngve K. Raustein" and sent to the Norwegian Seamen's Church, 317 East 52nd Street, New York, NY 10022.

A permanent memorial fund at MIT in his name has been established in consultation with his parents by his friends, the students and housemasters of Baker House, and the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. The most suitable way of memorializing Yngve at MIT and honoring his love of learning is being discussed with his family and will be announced later. Contributions may be sent to the Yngve K. Raustein MIT Memorial Fund, c/o Ms. Winifred McDonough, Recording Secretary, Office of the Treasurer, MIT, 238 Main St., Suite 200, Cambridge, MA 02142.
