Pedro A. de Alba (1939-2011)

 Dear Colleagues,

It is with great regret that I have to inform you that Professor Pedro A. de Alba passed away peacefully at his home on Sunday February 20, 2011. Born in Chihuahua, Mexico on April 2, 1939, he obtained his BSCE in 1964 from the National University of Mexico (UNAM). Following his undergraduate degree he spent two years working with Dr. Leonardo Zeevaert, a well-known consulting engineer, on foundation problems in Mexico City.

Jerry Yamamuro (1954-2010)


Dear Geotechnical Colleagues:

It is with much sadness that I convey that Jerry Yamamuro died on August 18, 2010, just short of 56 years old, after having suffered from diabetes and associated diseases for many years. Jerry did not complain, but his associated diseases were never really diagnosed although he was the subject of many hospitalizations, medical examinations and experimentations.
