Michael P. Wellman, the Lynn A. Conway Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, endowed this professorship in 2001 in his grandfather’s name. Morris Wellman, who lived from 1908 to 1995, was an engineer who worked for most of his career as a civil servant of the City of New York. By sharing with his grandson the high value he placed on education, honest hard work, and his love of engineering, he instilled core values for others to embody. It is in the celebration of this spirit that this professorship is named.
