The Department Of Computer Science Announces With Regret the Departure of a Great Friend, Henry Taub
Henry Taub, a great Technion benefactor and Distinguished Chairman of the International Board of
Governors, passed away on Thursday, March 31, 2011. Henry Taub supported the Faculty of Computer
Science from its inception until his last days. He twice undertook to establish a building for the Faculty;
once in its early days, when he contributed to build the "Old Taub Building" (currently hosting the
Humanities and Arts department), and secondly a decade ago when he supported the foundation of the present
CS Taub Building. Henry was always attentive and supportive to the CS needs and highly
valued the department's progress and its students' welfare.
Professor Eli Biham, CS Dean, said that the CS Department has lost a great friend.
Henry Taub, Honorary Doctor, and the Technion Medal recipient, was the founder of ADP, the world’s largest providers of business outsourcing solutions. He had also been engaged in philanthropic endeavors in the United States Jewish community and in Israel.
The Computer Science Faculty sends condolences to Marilyn Taub and the family.
