Abstract

Russell James Donnelly (b. 1930) was an exceptionally creative physicist with many other interests: art, music, history, and scientific societies and their scholarly journals. He reinvigorated the maturing field of low temperature physics by linking it strongly to fluid turbulence through bold and optimistic leadership at the intersection of the two fields. Immediately after achieving his Ph.D. at Yale University with C.T. Lane and L. Onsager, Russ joined the University of Chicago in 1956, where he became a professor at the first possible opportunity. After some ten years at University of Chicago, where he worked for a time with S. Chandrasekhar, he moved to the University of Oregon and led a vigorous life until his death in 2015. Russ was an excellent organizer of scientific meetings and an enthusiastic expositor of his science. He had a profound sense of service to the community, both civic and scientific, and showed exceptional scientific openness and generosity to his colleagues. He was greatly admired by his community.
