In Memoriam: Slater Newman

Slater Edmund Newman, professor emeritus of psychology, passed away on May 13, 2015. Newman joined NC State’s psychology faculty in 1957, and remained active within the college long after retiring in 2003. At NC State, he taught undergraduate and graduate courses in cognitive psychology, conducted research on human learning and memory and mentored hundreds of students who remember him fondly for his encouragement, high expectations and fairness. He was well known for his love of singing, his sense of humor, and his commitment to human rights and peace.
