In memoriam: Ed Ryan
Former Argonne employee and recent Argonne Associate Edward Ryan died on Oct. 20, 2019. Born in 1939, Ryan began his lifelong career at Argonne at the age of 21 and was still working part-time as an Argonne Associate, contributing to research at the IVEM user facility for which he led the design and construction 24 years earlier.
Ryan’s expertise included ion accelerators and electron microscopes, especially the combination of in situ ion irradiation in an electron microscope.
A memorial service for Ryan is planned at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26, 2019, at Trinity Lutheran Church, 1101 Kimberly Way, Lisle, IL (Kimberly Way & Rt. 53).
