Forwarded message from Richard E. McCarty, Dean, Krieger School of 
Arts and Sciences, Johns Hopkins University:

Dear Colleagues:

I regret to inform you that our colleague, Peter Jusczyk, professor of 
psychology in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, died unexpectedly on 
Thursday while attending a scientific conference in California. He was 53.

Professor Jusczyk, who had a joint appointment as professor of cognitive 
science, has been a valued and distinguished member of the Johns Hopkins 
faculty since 1996 and was recently elected to the prestigious Society of 
Experimental Psychologists. He was a world authority on the development of 
language in children.

The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Jusczyk 
Family Scholarship Fund, c/o Brown University, Box 1893, Providence, R.I. 
02912. The scholarship supports student-athletes at Brown, Peter's alma 
mater, who pursue higher degrees in the sciences.
