Dr. Nord Gale, the founding chair of the biological sciences department, passed away Friday, Feb. 1. Gale served Missouri S&T 32 years, retiring in 2000. A memorial service will be determined at a later date.
During his time at S&T, Gale received 18 Outstanding Teaching Awards and the Governor’s Award for Excellence in Education and was named Curators’ Distinguished Teaching Professor. One of Gale’s final accomplishments before retiring was writing the proposal that was ultimately successful in establishing a graduate biology program.
Missouri S&T’s Gale Hufham Scholarship for students in biological sciences is named after Gale and Dr. Jim Hufham, the first faculty member hired by Dr. Gale.
