Former CEE faculty member Bert C. Mullins died in Johnston Memorial Hospital in Abingdon, VA, on November 4, 2016, at age 90. Bert was a veteran of two wars, World War II and Korean. He came to UT in Civil Engineering in 1960, after leaving the military as a First Lieutenant. At UT he received a BSCE degree in 1962 and an MS in Sanitary Engineering in 1963. Later he received an MSCE from Georgia Tech and returned to UT where he taught Civil Engineering classes for ten years. He was appreciated as a teacher by the undergraduate students and was voted ASCE Faculty Man of the Year by the students his last year to teach before he resigned and began a career as an engineering consultant. Two sons also graduated in engineering at The University of Tennessee:  Roger Mullins in C.E. in 1977 and Clifford Mullins in what was then Engineering Science in 1979. In 1986, the Mullins family moved to Abington, VA, where he served as General Manager of the Washington County Service Authority for seven and one-half years. Then he formed his own firm, Bert C. Mullins and Associates. Bert will be remembered as an excellent student scholar, an effective teacher, a congenial colleague and a genuinely good man.
