It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our colleague Janos Galambos. Janos earned his Ph.D. in his native Hungary under the direction of Alfred Renyi in 1963, and was on faculty at Temple from 1970 to 2012. An expert in probability and statistics, Janos was a member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the Spanish Royal Academy of Engineering, and was also a fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.
