  • Notes 
    • Bob's 2002 Christmas card states:
      "2002 had two major milestones. We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary in Paris with dinner at the Tour d'Argent after a Rhone River cruise that took us to places like Avignon which we had not visited in 40 years. Everyday we would dock in towns and tour...and no unpacking! For Barbara's 70th birthday we enjoyed theatre, museums and dining in New York City.... Flew with sons, Michael and John, to attend the Pittsburgh wedding of Bob's Canadian cousin. Also flew to San Juan for Bob's NEDSI conference.... A number of trips were to see Michael in Waban, MA and attend Harvard Ed School events or while Barbara worked with a multiage school or on the way to Maine for Babara's COPIS conference.... Bob remains a board member of the Wharton Esherick Museum and the Harvard Business School Club of Philadelphia while Barbara continues as the Reading Excellence Act Local Evaluator for a school district."

      Robert graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, in 1951, earning his Ph.D. along the way. Around 2000 he and his wife created the "Drs. Barbara N. and Robert J. Pavan '51 Scholarship Fund," which is awarded to deserving students of Brooklyn Technical. See: (accessed Jul 2011).

      Robert had been a long-time member of the Board of Directors of The Wharton Esherick Museum, near Valley Forge National Historic Park, PA. See: ; and also see: (accessed Jul 2011).
