On March 25, 2021, Charles Sommerfield, professor emeritus of physics, passed away at the age of 87 in Gainesville, FL. Sommerfield was a long-time member of our faculty from 1961 until his retirement in 2005 and worked in theoretical physics. He was a great physicist and mentor to many here. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
