Bob Dernberger (1929-2015)

We mourn the death of Bob Dernberger, former director of the Center for Chinese Studies and professor of economics at the University of Michigan from 1968 to 1995, who passed away on March 5, 2015.  

This obituary includes additional information about his life. A memorial service will be planned for a later date.

Bob was a staunch supporter of Chinese Studies at Michigan and beyond. His fascinating career and life history are documented in an interview that he gave to the International Institute in 1994: A Career in Chinese Studies. He will be greatly missed.
