Professor Dick Dove Fellowship
The former students and faculty colleagues of the late Mechanical Engineering Professor Richard Dove are establishing an endowed fellowship in his name. Jack Little, a 1958 ME graduate from Farmington, New Mexico is leading the effort.
“Fortunately, before his death in 2011, I was able to communicate to Professor Dove (through his children) that we are setting up a graduate fellowship in the ME Department in his name,” Jack Little said. “Honoring a great teacher is a very worthwhile cause.” Dick Dove was Chair of ME from 1963-68 and then Dean of the School from 1968-1974. Dick Dove focused his research on experimental stress analysis. In addition to directing numerous research projects, he was director of the USAF Civil Engineering Research Laboratory.
