Dr. John Rice, Distinguished Alumnus

 Dr. Rice

On Friday, September 22, The College of Arts and Sciences recognized Hall of Fame honorees, Rising Stars and Distinguished Alumni. Among the twenty-one Distinguished Alumni recognized was Dr. John Rice, the W. Brooks Fortune Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Computer Science at Purdue University.  Dr. Rice earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in Mathematics from OSU in 1954 and 1956 before receiving his Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology. During his time as an undergraduate in the OSU Math Department, Dr. Rice published "Electronic Brains"; a work that demonstrates his progression towards the computer sciences. In 1964, Dr. Rice joined the faculty at Purdue University as Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science. From 1983-1996 he served as the Department Head of the Computer Sciences Department.

Below are a few words shared about Professor Rice at the ceremony, as well as photos from the event.
