In Remembrance: David Bibb Fischbach ’55 PhD Died on February 26 2013

David Bibb Fischbach, an expert on the nature and properties of carbon and graphite, and professor emeritus of materials science at the University of Washington, died at home in Bellevue on February 26, 2013, with family at his side.

Despite the chaotic appearance of his desktop, Dave was a meticulous note taker and research scientist. As an academic adviser and associate editor and reviewer of scientific papers submitted to Carbon, the international journal of the American Carbon Society, he was an exacting critic, alert to flaws of logic and methodology in his own work as well as that of others.

A full obituary appeared in the Seattle Times on March 2, 2013.
