Bill Anderson Fund at UD dedicated to professional diversity

A nonprofit established in the memory of pioneering disaster-studies researcher William A. Anderson and dedicated to his goal of improving diversity in the field announced last year that it would make the University of Delaware its home.

Now, during the recent Bill Anderson Fund (BAF) fall workshop at UD for graduate students in disaster studies, the designation of the University as the fund’s flagship institution has become official. UD and BAF representatives signed documents on Oct. 19 formalizing the connection.

Man Steps Onto Moon

1969 – The Morning News: Man Steps onto Moon

Astronaut Neil A. Armstrong took the first moon step at 10:56 p.m., Delaware time, just six hours and 39 minutes after he and Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. fulfilled the age-old dream of landing on the moon. This was a major milestone in the new era of space exploration. We invite you to explore this interactive experience and relive the excitement of the first moon landing.
