Carlos F. Lopez
Regents' Proceedings 748

The untimely death of Carlos Lopez, Associate Professor of Drawing and Painting, has deprived the University of Michigan of one of its most valued younger faculty members, who at the time of his death was not only adding to his professional reputation by his creative efforts but was likewise highly regarded as a teacher by the faculty and students of the College of Architecture and Design.

The warmth of his personality and the sympathy and vigor with which he interested himself in the work of his students were rare qualities which added to the affection and regard felt by all those whose good fortune it was to come in contact with him.

While they acknowledge the severe loss to the University caused by Professor Lopez' sudden death, the Regents of the University of Michigan recognize the still greater sorrow which it has brought to his immediate surviving family, and express to them their heartfelt sympathy.
