Remembering Nobel Laureate George Olah
George A. Olah, the Donald P. and Katherine B. Loker Distinguished Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Southern California and the recipient of the 1994 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, has died. He was 89.
"George impacted so many of us here at USC and throughout the chemical community, and we are reminded of his enormous contributions every day," said Mark Thompson, interim department chairman. "His loss will be felt for a very long time to come."
