Biological Sciences
The past quarter has been slow on news except for the fact that Philip C. “Trex” Trexler, ’32BS, ’36MS, ’84DSc(hon) celebrated his 102nd birthday on July 30. Trex is probably the oldest living alumnus of the department. After teaching and advancing gnotobiotic technology, first at Notre Dame’s LOBUND germ-free life laboratory and then in the UK and Canada over many decades, Trex retired in the South Bend area. He had been living at Mishawaka’s Waterford on the Lakes, where many ND faculty and staff are residing in their later years, and has moved to the Trinity Senior Sanctuary, which provides him more personalized care. Even though his eyesight is diminished, he still reads scientific and other scholarly publications but especially appreciates reading correspondence from friends, colleagues and those who just want to wish him well. Belated birthday wishes can be sent to Trex in care of Trinity at 17475 Dugdale Drive, South Bend, IN 46635, 547-247-7500. Interestingly, Trex is now living just off Douglas Road, the same street as his old laboratory. What goes around does seem to have come around. — Joan S. ’71MS and Philip B.

Graduate Degrees
Please share any information you have about persons with graduate degrees from ND who have achieved success in their profession. It is a way of honoring them and bringing honor to the University. I have only one item for this issue: Vince Prior ’93MSA, healthcare, has been named executive vice president and chief financial officer for the new health system created by the merger of Edward Hospital and Health Service (Naperville IL) and Memorial Healthcare (Elmhurst IL).

During the 1957-58 school year I lived with eight other graduate students on the second floor of the Fides Press building on Bulla Road. To give you some idea of the diversity of our group, here are the names and home sites of each: Phil Juntereal, Philippines; Dan Bergan, Minnesota; Joris Biemans, Netherlands; John Tergan, Ireland; Robert Corkil, Kansas; John Murphy, Oklahoma; Karl Remmen, Germany; and Frank Flaherty, Chicago.
