“Bob Dewald’s research focused primarily on the kinetics and mechanism of metal-ammonia reductions of organic compounds. His reputation for effective teaching in his freshman chemistry courses was legendary, and he was a model for any young professor who aspired for excellence in teaching the large lower-division courses. In the research laboratory, where Bob had miles of high-vacuum lines with vacuum pumps running 24/7, he taught graduate students the art of fabricating glass apparatus, meticulously conducting experiments, and analyzing data.”—Frederick A. Luzzio, former student
