Text size

ORONO - Professor Henry A. Pogorzelski passed away Dec. 30, 2015, at St. Joseph Hospital, Bangor. He was born Sept. 26, 1922, in Harrison, N.J.

Professor Pogorzelski proudly served his country in the U.S. Army during World War II. He is first and foremost proud of his time spent at the Institute for Advanced Studies, NJ (IAS), then Princeton, which made him able to deliver excellent teaching of mathematic and mathematical logic to students at large, especially since 1969 at the University, and extend his additional time in his own privately owned Henry Andrew Pogorzelski Research Institute for Mathematics, which replicates the IAS.

A celebration of his life and graveside service will be held 12 noon Tuesday, May 17, at the Research Institute for Mathematics, 383 College Ave., Orono. Adults only please, no children or pets.

Contributions (no cash please) in Professor Pogorzelski's memory may be made to University of Maine Mathematics & Statistics, 5752 Neville Hall, Room 333, Orono, ME 04469, or to his private foundation, Henry Andrew Pogorzelski Research Institute for Mathematics and Foundation, 383 College Ave., Orono, ME 04773, future home of One Pogorzelski Way.
