We are sad to report that Dr. Edward Della Torre, professor of engineering and applied science, and a longtime faculty member of ECE, passed away during the winter break. Dr. Della Torre joined GW in 1982. He was a scholar and researcher in the field of magnetic material behavior and modeling, and was the director of GW’s Institute for Magnetics Research.
Anyone who wishes to provide condolences should please contact ECE's operations manager, Robert Baden. Dr. Della Torre’s family is requesting that no flowers be sent, and that if anyone wishes to make a donation, to please make one to: medical research for cardio and heart-related areas; medical research for the treatment, prevention, and cure of lupus; or the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra OrchKids program.
