Robert D. Dunlap, 97, died on Sept. 18 in Orono, Maine.

“Professor Dunlap’s physical chemistry class had a reputation as one of the most difficult undergraduate classes at the University of Maine. Professor Dunlap set the standard for excellence that would be a touchstone in my own career, as I am now a professor of biological chemistry at the University of Kentucky studying Alzheimer’s disease. A generation of us were in awe of professor Dunlap. We model him in the classroom and research laboratory. I’m grateful to call him a mentor and friend, and I miss him.”—D. Allan Butterfield, friend and former student

Education: BA, chemistry, Colgate University, 1944; PhD, physical chemistry, Pennsylvania State University, 1949

Survivors: Wife, Cynthia; daughter, Constance Dunlap Barnes; sons, David and Stephen; five grandchildren
