Member Biographies

The first biography project, completed in 1997, resulted in a book that is available in the SJSU Library. The title of the book is "Biographies of Retired Faculty San Jose State University 1997". The second project was started in 2009. Members were asked to complete a form giving their personal and professional history as well as a personal statement. Completed biographies were added to the list below as they became available. Click on a name below to download the biography as a pdf file.  Deceased members are identified with an asterisk (*).
