In Memoriam: Howard Schutz

​SSP would like to celebrate the contributions of Dr. Howard Schutz to the field of Sensory Science. Howard passed away May 7, 2017, at the age of 89. He was one of the kindest, gentlest, and most energetic people in our community. As a giant in our field, he founded many programs and was a gold founding member of the Society of Sensory Professionals and the creative mind behind the UCDE Sensory & Consumer Science Certificate program. Howard was a great mentor and personal friend to many of us. We will miss him dearly. A celebration of his contributions for our field is anticipated at the upcoming Pangborn Symposium in Rhode Island this August.
