The Biochemistry Department would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all who attended the Memorial Symposium honoring the Life and Work of Dr. Lowell P. Hager. The remembrance of Lowell’s warm nature along with a scientific program to salute his achievements far exceeded our expectations.

The festivities kicked off with the Hager Memorial Golf Open on Friday. This tradition must continue!
This year’s winners are:
        Michael Gregory – Overall
        Mark McLean – Peoria Handicap

Friday evening found everyone at the residence of David and Del Kranz for the chili party. Once again, a sincere thank you to Dave and Del for opening their home and making the chili in Lowell’s colossal pot! Alumni, grad students, faculty, staff, along with Lowell’s family, friends, and colleagues were all reminiscing and telling tales as the evening wore on. Martinis made appearances. A Lowell Hager slide show that ran continually became standing room only. Songs were rehearsed. And, more stories were traded...

The Scientific Symposium was held Saturday at the Charles G. Miller Auditorium on campus. A special thank you to all of the Chairs and Speakers. The symposium honored not only Dr. Hager’s remarkable research, but also his teaching and collegiality. (A copy of the program is still active on the web site.)

Special thanks to:
Jo Brumet – time, patience & beautiful design of Hager Memorial posters & programs

Pictures are now posted on the Photos & Remembrances page!

Indeed, Lowell did have a magic touch. In that spirit, the Lowell P. Hager Memorial Symposium was established to honor him. More information about Dr. Hager’s legacy can be found here: http://mcb.illinois.edu/remembering/lowell_hager/
