Additional messages came in over the weekend from alumni who wish to express their condolences to the friends and family of Professor James Devlin, and to share memories of having him as a teacher and a friend.
- Dr. Devlin is an unforgettable man. As an 18-year old student sitting in his CC101, I found him to be both terrifying and inspirational as I listened to him talk about everything under the sun for 3 straight hours. Nearly 20 years later, I continue to think of him as one of the most influential people in my life, and I have yet to encounter a more passionate, enthralling lecturer. I am truly honored to have had him as a professor.
