Rudy Marcus

Rudy Marcus, at 100, saw his centenarian birthday marked by his colleagues and former students with a celebration at the Faculty Center at Caltech in Pasadena–where he still teaches after 45 years! Not only is Rudy a revered chemistry professor, but he also publishes several academic articles every year. As a theoretical chemist, he is fascinated by the continuing developments in his field and has no intention of retiring. Rudy was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1992 for his work on electron transfer reactions. And what did Rudy do on the day after his 100th birthday? He went back to work!
