Roberto Sanchez, prolific and influential professor in our Department, passed away on August 15, 2016 Roberto Garza Sánchez was born in San Antonio, on September 24, 1922. He joined the UW faculty ranks in 1950. He was tenured in 1955 and promoted to Full Professor in 1963. His most lasting legacy in S&P was the culture of theatre and performance he actively fostered for over three decades.
The Department of Spanish and Portuguese recently has been honored with a generous donation from Marsha Gray Ehrlich, a former graduate student in our Department, and an inspirational teacher during her long professional career.
