The MIT community is invited to join the family of Professor Jonathan Allen at an informal memorial gathering on Wednesday, May 17 from 2-5pm in Rm 34-401. Professor Allen, director of the Research Laboratory of Electronics for 19 years, died on April 24 at age 65 after a lengthy illness (MIT Tech Talk, April 26, 2000). A formal memorial service will be held in the fall.
A funeral was held in St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Cambridge on April 13 for Helen Pelusi of Cambridge, who died on April 10 at the age of 83. The former laboratory aide in the Department of Biology retired in 1981 after 21 years at MIT.
