Prof. Jack Holman (1934 – 2013) spent over 50 years at SMU, first as a student, and then as a professor.  He wrote several text books, including the popular textbook Heat Transfer, which was first published in 1963 and remained in circulation through 10 editions.  It was utilized around the world and many of SMU’s students and faculty from overseas knew of Prof. Holman from his books before ever stepping foot on campus.  Prof. Holman is memorialized on campus in the Mechanical Engineering suite, named in his honor in the J. Lindsey Embrey building.
