Day of Remembrance
Old Capitol — Tuesday, Nov. 1 at 4:30 p.m.
A brief Day of Remembrance ceremony to mark the 25th anniversary of the 1991 University of Iowa campus shooting will be held at 4:30 p.m. this afternoon on the north side of Old Capitol between Jessup and Macbride halls.
On Nov. 1, 1991, Gang Lu, a graduate student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, shot six people, killing five and paralyzing one, before taking his own life.
The shooting victims were Associate Vice President T. Anne Cleary, Dr. Christoph K. Goertz, Dr. Shan Linhua, Dr. Dwight R. Nicholson, Miya Rodolfo-Sioson and Professor Robert A. Smith
The ceremony will remember and honor the shooting victims, with remarks by UI Executive Vice President and Provost P. Barry Butler and a representative of the Department of Physics and Astronomy. A permanent memorial will be placed on the north side of Old Capitol at a later date.
The Iowa City Press-Citizen has published a series of articles about the shooting and the aftermath of the event on the University of Iowa campus. Check it out here:
