Professor Keedy, the University of Newcastle, Australia
Professor Keedy, the University of Newcastle, Australia
This photo appeared in the University News, Volume 11, Number 4, March 29 to April 19, 1985. The text was: "Computing Science Chair Filled Professor Leslie Keedy has taken up his appointment to the Foundation Chair of Computer Science at the University. Professor Keedy, who is 44 years of age, was educated in the United Kingdom, and first studied theology at King’s College, London University graduating B.D. (Hons) in 1964. This was followed by a Doctor of Philosophy in theology from Trinity College, Oxford University (1968). From 1968 to 1974 he worked with International Computers Ltd in the UK and West Germany, initially ass a systems programmer. After being promoted to design consultant he became a member of the central design team responsible for VME-B, the main general purpose operating system for the ICL2900 series of computers. He came to Monash University in 1974 as a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science. He was promoted to senior Lecturer in 1978 and completed a further PhD (Computer Science) as a staff member of that University. In 1982 he was appointed full professor of Computer Science and head of the Operating Systems Research Group at the Technical University of Darmstadt, West Germany, with seven academic and technical staff. In 1984 he became Director of the Institute of Practical Computer Science, which had a staff of five professors with their research groups. Professor Keedy’s research interests (in which he has gained a notable international reputation) are in the areas of operating systems, computer architecture and hardware, software engineering and programming language design. In 1976 he established the MONADS Project at Monash with the aim of developing techniques which improve the quality of large software engineering projects and which provide a better technological basis for guaranteeing the privacy of information in computer systems. This research has led to the development of a workstation computer, the MONADS-PC, which recently attracted international recognition at the 1985 Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, where a paper describing its design was designated best paper in the hardware section. The other main achievement of the project has been the development of a new very high level programming language LENIBNIZ, the work on which has mainly been carried out in Darmstadt The Chair of Computer Science is located in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science. The policy of the Department is to promote the application of mathematical disciplines to other fields including physical, social and life sciences, engineering, economics, commerce and the management sciences. Professor Keedy’s initial aims are to re-establish the MNADS Project here in Newcastle and to introduce a first year Computer Science course in the near future. He is also interested in promoting the use of computing throughout the University, including areas not conventionally associated with modern technology. Professor Keedy’s background of research and teaching will greatly aid the integration of computing studies within the University. In particular, with the appointment also of Professor Cantoni to a Chair of Computer Engineering last year, the University is now in a very strong position to provide academic leadership in this growing and all-important area of contemporary study." This photo also appeared in the Campus bulletin, Number 2, May 16, 1988. The text was: "PROFESSOR LES KEEDY, the University's Foundation Professor of computer Science, has resigned. He expects to take up his new position - Professor of Computer Science (operating systems) at the University of Bremen, West Germany - in November. He also becomes Director of a new Institute for Operating systems and Computer Architecture within a new Computer Science Technology Centre currently being established by the State of Bremen. Bremen is a major seaport, with a population of about 750,000. It has a long commercial and cultural history, being one of the mediaeval free city states of the Hanseatic League. Even today it is a separate free city-state within the Federal Republic of Germany, and is one of the most important commercial centres in northern Europe. Professor Keedy said there was a separate Faculty of computer Science at the University of Bremen, with seven full professors and four associate professors. His establishment would include four personal research assistants and a secretary. He expected to use the research positions to gather together his former research team from his earlier period as Professor at the Technical University of Darmstadt. He had also been offered an extremely generous establishment grant (about A$170,000) and funding which would enable him to visit Australia regularly to maintain links with the MONADS research group, which would continue at the University of Newcastle under the leadership of Senior Lecturer in Computer Science, Dr

Steve Prefontaine places 4th in the 5000m event of a Great Britain vs US dual meet at White City Stadium, London, 13 August 1969
Steve Prefontaine places 4th in the 5000m event of a Great Britain vs US dual meet at White City Stadium, London, 13 August 1969. This was the third meet of Pre's first overseas tour, as a member of the AAU's US Track and Field team. The summer of 1969 was between Pre's high school graduation and his enrollment in the University of Oregon. The venerable White City Stadium served as the venue for the 1908 London Olympic Games. In 1931, a 440yd running track was installed for the Amateur Athletic Association Championships, held there from 1932 to 1970. The stadium was torn down for new development in 1985 after serving various uses, including greyhound racing, rugby and soccer league play, a motor speedway, the 1934 British Empire Games, and a match of the 1966 World Cup. The summer of 1969 saw Steve racing in his first international meets as an AAU team member. He had graduated from high school in the spring and qualified for the team by placing fourth in the AAU Championship 3-mile event on June 29th in Miami, Florida—the only high school runner in the race. He was picked up from the alternates list when Tracy Smith elected not to compete in with the US Team. As a US team member, Pre ran the 5000 meter events in Los Angeles (5th//US-USSR-Commonwealth meet), Stuttgart (3rd//US-Europe meet), Augsburg (2nd//US-W. Germany meet), and London (4th//US-Great Britain meet). His London race was his last before enrolling in the University of Oregon in the fall. While Pre had a spectacular high school racing history, he was not yet a headliner in the international or collegiate running community. The big news for the London 5000m race was the slated competition between US runners Gerry Lindgren, formerly of Washington State University, Tracy Smith, formerly of Oregon State University (who dropped out of the tour, which meant Pre was added), and the British runners Ian Stewart and Dick Taylor. Pre had been slated for the 3000m event but was added to the 5000m race instead, running for Coos Bay, his high school hometown. The US team performance was uninspiring, except for some top-rank sprinting by Ben Vaughn, a great high hurdle run by Willie Davenport, and excellent, though losing, intermediate hurdling by Ralph Mann and Nick Lee. The home crowd of 7500 the first day (a genrous estimate, and 10,000 the second day, had much to cheer about despite the essentially meaningless US team win 131-90. The highlight of the meet was Brit Dick Taylor's win in the four-man field for the 5000m, featuring two Brits (Taylor and Ian Stewart, The latter would edge Pre out of a medal in the 5000m final of the 1972 Munich Olympics) and two Americans (Gerry Lindgern and Steve Prefontaine, the latter not yet enrolled at the University of Oregon). Lindgren paced four laps in 4:17.0, cutting s fast pace as he had at Stuttgart before this meet. With seven laps to go, Taylor threw in a break with the intent of annihilating Lindgren--he was successful. Taylor put in fast laps of 62.8 and 61.6, and dropped Lindgren 20 yards back in a space of 250 yards. Even Ian Stewart, possibly Britain's brightest 5000m talent, found the going too much. Taylor had enough left to run a 61.6 last lap to the roar of the crowd. His finishing time broke a 4-year old British record set by Mike Wiggs by four seconds. Lindgren was spent and came in third, 47.8 seconds after Taylor. The unsung and largely unknown Pre was incidentally reported as finishing fourth, and last, 1:9.4 after the winner. Dick Taylor went on to win the race, setting the fastest time of the year in the 5000m in 13:29.0 and a new British record: Finishing times: 1. Dick Taylor (Britain) 13:29.0 2. Ian Stewart (Britain) 13:36.4 3. Gerry Lindgren (So. Lake Tahoe) 14:16.8 4. Pre (Coos Bay, OR) 14:38.4 Oregon athletes gained points with Neal Steinhauser winning the shot put in 64-3, and Kenny Moore placing second with 29:08.8 in the 10,000m behind the UK's Ron Hill and his 29:03.8. US athletes also won other events: the women's 100 meters by Iris Davis of Nashville, the Women's 400 meters by Kathy Hammond of Sacramento, the men's 200 meters by Ben Vaughn of Atlanta, the discus throw by Tim Volmer of Oregon State, and the high jump by Otis Burrell of Los Angeles. The US men won the meet 131-90, the women's title went to Britain 67-66. Pre is wearing an AAU team singlet--Pre's combat against AAU treatment of athletes was to be a signature part of his running career in the future. This European tour would be his baptism. Most members of the US track team returned to the US carrying a letter of protest to President Nixon after a European tour full of dissension and some disappointment. The trouble blew up in Germany where the athletes complained of poor accommodations. When the US athletes arrived in London they formed a committee which drew up the letter to Nixon, listing what they considered are essential changes which should be made in AAU policy. At one stage the athletes threatened

Showers Brothers Furniture Company: The Shared Fortunes of a Family, a City, and a University
When the Showers family arrived in Bloomington, Indiana, the railroad was just coming to town and a modest university was struggling to survive. Having spent the prior 18 years moving from place to place, the family decided to settle down and invest its modest resources to start a furniture company. The business proved to be extremely profitable and a stroke of good fortune for the small community. The company's success paved streets, which brought additional new businesses to town, and helped Indiana University flourish. The later philanthropic acts of the Showers family encouraged the town's continued development. The family's contributions helped the institution make it through difficult times and paved the way to its becoming the largest university in the state. In this history of Showers Brothers, Carrol Krause tells the story of a remarkably successful collaboration between business, town, and gown.
