    The 1965 Tamanawas school yearbook has a one page tribute to Dr. Feldandt on page 35 that reads:
    "Dr. Fehlandt. who retired this year after twenty-seven years of service to the department and the university, has witnessed tremendous changes in the sciences during his interesting career. Also, progressing, there is little about this university that has not been changed significantly within the years he has taught at UPS. Among many of his students who have gone on to further successes in chemistry and related fields, this year Alan Hart and John Lawrence are cited for having received assistantships for cintiniung their education toward graduate degrees at the University of Arizona and Purdue University, respectively."
