Professor emeritus Ray R. Larson passed away this week following a battle with cancer.
Larson served on the faculty of the UC Berkeley School of Library and Information Studies, School of Information Management and Systems, and School of Information from 1984 until his retirement last fall. He specialized in the design and performance evaluation of information retrieval systems and digital libraries.
Ray was a loyal friend and colleague, and a dedicated scholar, teacher, and mentor. We will miss him dearly.
