Rad Byerly, Jr.

Rad Byerly, Jr., passed away in 2016 after an impressive career that included more than twenty years as staff on and ultimately Director of the Science Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives.

He also was Director of the Center for Space and Geosciences Policy at CU Boulder.  Rad spent the last years of his career with the Center for Science and Technology Policy Research (CSTPR) at CU Boulder, where he was known as a mentor, adviser and friend with a wicked sense of humor.

CSTPR launched the Radford Byerly, Jr. Award in Science and Technology Policy in recognition of Rad’s contributions to and impact on the CSTPR community.  Thanks to several generous donations CSTPR was able to offer a $1500 award to a graduate student for the past three years. (We are soliciting donations for future awards here.)

Following a selection process, Patrick Chandler was chosen to receive the 2019 Byerly award.
