Description

Robert P. Mahoney was a professor of biology at Skidmore from 1964 to 1994, with interests centering on microbiology, electron microscopy, and bioethics. He also was instrumental starting Skidmore’s tradition of support for the Red Cross, launching the campus blood donation drives in 1968. In this interview, he talks about how he helped Skidmore secure its first electron microscope and how the Biology Department grew over the years, responding to curricular changes and student interests. The department named its microscopy lab in his honor when he retired, and in 2019 he was recognized as a Red Cross Blood Hero of the Cape, Islands, and Southeast Massachusetts for personally donating 264 pints of blood thus far.
