    On September 1, 1950, Professor Nello Pace established the White Mountain Research Station for the University of California and served as the Station’s first Director from 1950 to 1977. Under the visionary leadership of Director Pace, the University made a remarkable contribution to science and education in this relatively remote part of California. Scientist adventurer Nello Pace, who climbed Himalayan peaks to find out how the body reacts to high altitude and pioneered the study of the physiological effects of weightlessness, died June 17, 1995 at his home in Berkeley California of prostate cancer. To honor and remember his contributions to WMRS, the Nello Pace Endowment was established with generous contributions from Nello’s family, friends and the Fusenot foundation. Donations to the fund are being accepted and the exact use will be announced when the Station celebrates "Fifty Years of High Altitude Physiology" in 2001/2002.  --University Bulletin, Volume 32, Number 12
