The tribute below was written by Mr. Tom Logsdon, a long standing instructor for ATI Courses.
Dr. Robert Nelson, friend and colleague, will be sorely missed. He lost his battle with cancer after a long and illustrious career serving his students and those who enjoyed interacting with him and reading his lucid prose.
Bob taught down the hall from my various scattered classrooms several times. And, when time permitted, I always snatched the opportunity to sit in on his exceptional lectures. He was always clear and logical and well organized. And interesting ideas and concepts seemed to spill out of his mouth with remarkable ease. He wrote in the same manner he spoke – always exhibiting strong rapport with his many enthusiastic students hanging on every word.
He will be sorely missed by his students, his colleagues and his many friends.
