Memorial for Chancellor Emeritus Julius Krevans Draws UCSF’s Who’s Who

UC San Francisco’s leaders, past and present, gathered on Oct. 2 to remember Chancellor Emeritus Julius “Julie” R. Krevans, MD, who passed away earlier this year at the age of 91.

Krevans led UCSF from 1982 to 1993, spearheading remarkable growth for the University physically, programmatically and in international stature. His enormous impact was evident in the collection of distinguished leaders who came to honor his contributions and in the stories shared by his former colleagues during the memorial, held at Gladstone Institutes.

Among those gathered were University of California President Janet Napolitano, biotech pioneers Herbert Boyer, PhD, and William Rutter, PhD, and four of the past UCSF chancellors – Haile Debas, MD, J. Michael Bishop, MD, Susan Desmond-Hellmann, MD, MPH, and Sam Hawgood, MBBS. They joined Krevans’ wife, Patsy, his five children – Nita, Nora, Sarah, J.R. and Rachel – and other family members to celebrate the life of a UCSF legend.
