Last Updated: Apr 30, 2015 12:49:14 am Message ID: 121669

To the Yale College Community,

It is our sad duty to inform you that Paul Hudak, professor of computer science and master of Saybrook College, died last night after a long battle with leukemia. With him were Cathy Van Dyke, associate master of Saybrook, and their family.

Professor Hudak’s life and work touched so many people, among them the students and faculty in the Department of Computer Science, the community of musicians who shared his love for jazz, the high-school lacrosse athletes he coached, and the students, staff, and fellows of Saybrook College.

A memorial service is planned for Sunday, May 3, at 1:30 p.m., in Battell Chapel, giving the community a chance to come together, honor Professor Hudak, and celebrate his life. Friends may call on the family on Saturday, May 2, from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., at Sisk Brothers Funeral Home, 3105 Whitney Avenue in Hamden.

President and Chris Argyris Professor of Psychology
