Rosenzweig among victims

Philip M. Rosenzweig was among the passengers who died when American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center.

A 1977 computer science graduate, Mr. Rosenzweig, director of Sun Microsystems Laboratories Boston Center for Networking in Burlington, Mass., led an advanced development group focusing on new network protocols and services. Previously, he led the firm's PC Networking Group. Before joining Sun Microsystems, he was director of software for Xyplex.

He was instrumental in helping RIT develop a research relationship with Sun. He served on the Computer Science/Software Engineering Advisory Board and the President's Roundtable. In 1999, he was recognized with a Distinguished Alumni Award.

A native of Long Island, Mr. Rosenzweig, 47, leaves his wife, Lauren, and two sons, Jeremy, 13, and Max, 5.

The Philip M. Rosenzweig Memorial Fund has been established by computer science faculty members Margaret and Ken Reek '79. Margaret Meng Reek '77, interim chair of the department of computer science, was a classmate of Mr. Rosenzweig.

The fund will assist student research assistants. "These students benefit from hands-on industry experience, something Phil truly believed in," notes Margaret Reek.

Contributions to the memorial fund can be sent to B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences, 20 Lomb Memorial Drive, Rochester, N.Y. 14623.
