Passing of Dr James Johannes

Dr James Johannes passed away earlier this week. He founded On-Line Applications Research (OAR) Corporation in 1978. He was an Emeritus Professor of the Computer Science department faculty at University of Alabama in Huntsville and was the first head of the department. Based upon the number of dissertations on the shelves at OAR, he advised over twenty-five successful Ph.D. students. When he retired, he was serving as the Graduate Dean of the UAH College of Science.
