Peter J. Salamun Herbarium Unveiling Ceremony

Peter J. Salamun, who passed away late last year, was a longtime faculty member in the Department of Biological Sciences whose focus in botany led to extensive research contributions to UWM’s herbarium. As well as a brilliant scientist, Peter was also a valued educator and mentor to his students.

Join us on Friday, October 31st as we recognize his service and his impact on the department and the university as a whole. At 5:30 PM in the herbarium we will recognize Peter and his family for their creation of a scholarship fund for students in plant sciences and will dedicate the herbarium in his memory.
