Burrus Beer Mug

Image of Sid Burrus and the text "csb@70."

A few items were dropped off at the Woodson last Friday bound for our Rice University Memorabilia collection (UA 225). Among them was a cute little beer mug from the 70th birthday celebration for Charles Sidney “Sid” Burrus – Rice alum and Maxfield and Oshman Professor Emeritus of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

We were sad to hear of Dr. Burrus’s passing on Saturday at the age of 86.

If you would like to learn more about him, News and Media Relations wrote a nice obituary.
