A memorial service for Michael Feld will be held at 12 p.m. on June 16 at the MIT Chapel.

Feld, a professor of physics and director of the George R.

He died on April 10 after an eight-year struggle with multiple myeloma.

The program, "Remembering Michael," will feature talks by selected individuals on various personal and professional aspects of Michael’s life. There will also be a presentation by The Spectratones. Michael was proud of having started this singing group that has performed at many functions of the Spectroscopy Laboratory. Please email Zina Queen zqueen@mit.edu if you plan to attend.
