A memory submitted by Angela Meyer, Class of 1983, 1985, 1987

My mentor and huge influence on my professional life was Dr. Paul Packman – Mechanical Engineering Department Chair and my MS and Ph.D. advisor. He always had a story to tell; always had a piece of some broken fixed wing or rotary helicopter in his office to show you. Not only did he teach me all about fracture and fatigue of materials; he introduced me to the world of litigation consulting and also to the world outside of Dallas through food and stories of his travels around the world.
