Curry T. Haynes. Mr. Haynes, professor emeritus of biology at Oxford, died Jan. 11 of complications of pneumonia. He was 97.

Mr. Haynes joined the Oxford faculty in 1945 and retired in 1970 after chairing the biology department for 25 years. At the request of former Dean Bond Fleming, Mr. Haynes remained employed by Oxford as a gardener from 1973 until 1993. He established the Hearn Nature Trail at Oxford, building bridges and benche throughout the wooded path just west of the main quadrangle.

Mr. Haynes' late wife, Bobbie, was also employed at Oxford as a nurse from 1946 until 1983. She died in 1998. At the start of their careers, the Hayneses lived in an Oxford dormitory and began their family there. In April 1977, the Haynes Scholarship Fund was established in their honor at Oxford, and the Class of 1992 named the campus' Oxford Common in their honor as well.

"His greatest strength, as with all great teachers, was inspiring so many students to achieve," said fellow biology Professor Homer Sharp.

Ronnie Brooks. Mr. Brooks, a painter in Facilities Manage-ment, died of heart failure on Jan. 7. He had been employed at Emory since June 1971.

Telecom printing directory supplement

Emory Telecommunications is printing a supplement to its 1999-2000 telephone directory after a number of individual faculty and staff listings were left out of the original book published late last year.

Director Connie Gentry said the problem stemmed from new telemanagement software the department installed and the import of old information into the new system.

She said Telecommunications will be sending out a review copy of the supplement to all University departments in the next few weeks for quick review, and she expects the final version to be distributed in about a month. The supplement will be printed on newsprint, she said. Anyone with questions may call Ann King at 404-727-0303.

Gentry also announced that hours for the University switchboard (404-727-6123) have been scaled back to 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Previously the switchboard was staffed seven days a week from 7 a.m. to midnight.

Gentry said after-hours calls will be routed to an automated answering system, and callers will be able to connect to the Emory Police Depart-ment's dispatch office for information or emergencies. "This helps us immensely in controlling costs and providing staffing at appropriate times," Gentry said.
