The UC Berkeley community honored and remembered its lost members Monday with bagpipes, an honor guard, the release of white doves and words of tribute by Chancellor Carol Christ.

Names of faculty, emeriti, staff and students who died over the last year were read at the annual memorial ceremony, conducted on the lawn outside California Hall.

Musical selections were brought moments ripe for reflection. Guests left flowers and keepsakes at the memorial site.

The list of those remembered follows. If a person has been inadvertently omitted, please contact memorial organizers at The names of people remembered at last fall’s ceremony are listed here.
