Event description

Description

James F. Gibbons retired from Stanford last year after more than 60 years of affiliation with the university!

Bert Hesselink (Chairman), Chris Gronet, Jim Harris, Bill Johnson, and Jim Sturm take great pleasure inviting you to attend the Gibbons Fest to honor Jim for the inspiration and impact he has had on his students, colleagues, friends, Silicon Valley, industry, juvenile offenders, and people worldwide.

The Gibbons Fest will be held in the MacKenzie Room in the Huang building on April 26 from 1PM till 9:30 PM. In the morning we plan a tour of the campus to showcase the many new facilities Stanford has recently built in support of science and engineering.
