The annual EECS faculty dinner was a special event this year. Held at the Museum of Science in January 2005, the evening’s focus was to celebrate the distinguished service and many contributions of Profs. John Guttag and Barbara Liskov as outgoing Head and Associate Department Head.

The MIT Chorallaries serenaded them with customized songs, and the faculty all enjoyed amusing recollections by those who worked with Barbara and John over the last several years. The Departmental cane (the “electron and the bit”) was ceremoniously passed to Rafael Reif as the new Department Head.

The MIT acapella singing group, the MIT Chorollaries presented Guttag, Liskov and guests with especially designed songs.
