It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Professor Emeritus Allan McKillop on Wednesday, October 15, 2014. Allan started his career at UC Davis in the College of Agricultural Engineering in 1951 and was instrumental in the founding of the College of Engineering and the development of the Mechanical Engineering Program in the early 1960’s. He served as Chair of the Department from 1974 to 1978 and again from 1991 to 1995 and became Professor Emeritus in 1996. He will be sorely missed by all of us in the department, college, and university.
A celebration of Allan’s life will take place at the Buehler Alumni Center on the Davis campus this coming Saturday (November 15) at 3:30pm.
