Dr. Paul Gray, past president of MIT, passed away this morning at the age of 85. http://news.mit.edu/2017/former-mit-president-paul-gray-dies-0918 

I am sure many of my fellow observers who may have been associated with the 'Tute, recall him fondly for his dedication to advancement of science as an accomplished research engineer and educator. But, probably the fondest memory of him of all for me, was how he benefited the social lives of us male "nerds", by dramatically increasing the female ratio of the MIT student body from 2% to 30% :)
