Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.

Memorial Trees

Circle of Life

In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Obituary for Dr. Nicholas Dopuch

Olin Emeritus Professor Nicholas Dopuch, a transformational figure in the world of accounting research who past deans credit with profoundly elevating the business school’s profile, died on Sunday, February 4, 2018. He was 88. He was born Nov. 15, 1929, in St. Louis, the son of Marko and Mary Tribulak Dopuch.
He served in the Strategic Air Command, U.S. Air Force during the Korean War.
Dr. Dopuch joined Olin in 1983 as the Hubert C. and Dorothy R. Moog Professor of Accounting and is widely regarded as a key impetus for raising the bar on academic research from the business school. Before coming to Olin, he was a professor and editor or co-editor of the Journal of Accounting Research at the University of Chicago. He directed Olin’s PhD program from 1986 through 2003, and continued as editor or co-editor of the Journal of Accounting Research while he was on Olin’s faculty until 2001, retiring from that post after 34 years.
In 2001, Dr. Dopuch was inducted into the Accounting Hall of Fame and received the Washington University Distinguished Faculty Award on Founders Day in 2004. Beyond his influence on accounting research, former colleagues and students recall Dr. Dopuch as a tough but caring professor who challenged his colleagues and students to challenge themselves.
