died January 6, 2005. Vida was an attorney who began her practice

on employment and labor issues. Much of her legal work involved
cases where a single person was mistreated, which she managed to
see as representative of a larger institutional injustice, so that
in helping her client she also repaired the law. Many people who
never heard of her owe their peace of mind or their unemployment
benefits or their enjoyment of other important rights to her. She
was a member of the board, and sometime board chair, of the Massachusetts
Law Reform Institute. She is survived by her husband, Dennis Geller
'66, and two children, Elizabeth and Joshua.

N. Theodore Sommer '58 died January 1, 2005, of complications
of a brain tumor.
A graduate of Harpur College and Cornell Law School, he was a dedicated
volunteer for the State University of New York, serving on the Board
of Trustees, and as Binghamton University Foundation president,
vice president and board member. Linda J. Battaglini '71,
MA '77, and former Board of Directors president, remembers
Ted fondly: "Ted Sommer brought a quality to his leadership
that helped to bridge historically difficult situations with compassion,
wisdom and integrity. The changes set in motion during his tenure
at the Foundation opened the door to a new era in building alumni
support for the University. I valued his counsel, which he generously
extended to personal as well as University concerns. His gentle
gifts graced our community and we are the better for having known
him. My heartfelt condolences go to his family."
As a partner in the law firm of Hinman, Howard and Kattell since
1970, he was one of the premiere litigators in New York state and
handled many of the firm's most complicated cases. In recognition
of service to his profession, the University and the community,
he received the Binghamton University Alumni Association's
Glenn G. Bartle Distinguished Alumnus Award in 1986. He served as
an outstanding alumni volunteer for Binghamton.
Vice President for External Affairs Tom Kelly remembers Ted: "In
1995-96, Ted Sommer served as co-chair of the 50th Anniversary Celebration
of the founding of Binghamton University, and I had the privilege
of serving as co-chair with him. Ted was brilliant, insightful,
and had a genuine passion for the University, which he openly displayed.
His dedication to and affection for Binghamton enabled him to speak
in a most articulate and heartfelt manner at many of the major events
during the year-long celebration. Ted had the respect of every member
of the planning committee which looked to him to skillfully navigate
the difficult decisions which ultimately led to a very successful
celebration. And the success of the celebration, which is largely
due to Ted's efforts, set the stage for our subsequent, first-ever
comprehensive gifts campaign for Binghamton, which exceeded its
goal by 20 percent, and did so one year early. The pride and enthusiasm
which Ted had for Binghamton was conveyed through him to our alumni
and friends who participated in the celebration and the campaign.
Binghamton University has lost one of its finest graduates and best
He also served as a lecturer in law and business law at Binghamton
University's School of Management and Harpur College. Alumnus
Craig Medwick '74 remembers Ted from his days as a student:
"I was graduated as a math major. But I decided to go to law
school largely because of Ted's influence. He made his Business
Law course an exciting learning experience and great fun. When I
applied to law school and then when I was made a partner at my firm,
Ted was always helpful with sage advice and sincere thoughts. He
was a great teacher and mentor."
As an active community leader, he was involved with a great number
of organizations, including the Broome County Bar Association (president),
Broome County World Affairs Council, Broome County Community
Ambassador Project (ambassador to Brazil), the Jewish Federation
of Broome County (president) and Hillel Academy (president).
