Peter J. Boyle (1943-1999) held degrees in history and geology from Eastern Michigan and San Francisco State universities, respectively. He was an industrial designer at San Francisco State University before arriving at the University of Arizona in 1986, where he was an instrument maker and designer in the UA department of civil engineering and engineering mechanics until his death in 1999.

A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, he served in the Strategic Air Command from 1962 to 1966. Throughout his life he was an avid gardener and angler.

In honor of Peter Boyle’s interest in the growth of undergraduates, Caren Deming’s bequest establishes the Peter Boyle and Caren Deming Memorial Endowment Fund for the benefit of the undergraduate students in the UA department of civil engineering and engineering mechanics.

Caren J. Deming, professor emerita at the University of Arizona, earned her bachelor's and master's degrees, as well as her PhD, at the University of Michigan. She taught in the broadcast communication arts department at San Francisco State University before moving to the University of Arizona in 1985. She was professor and department head of the department of media arts from its inauguration in 1986 to 1994.

Professor Deming taught courses in film and television history, criticism, and writing for more than 40 years before her retirement in 2008. She now lives in Ann Arbor, Mich.
