University community mourns death of Michael 'Mickey' Waxman

Mon, 07/21/2014

LAWRENCE – The University of Kansas lost a longtime member of the Lawrence campus July 16.

Michael “Mickey” Waxman, a statistical consultant for University of Kansas Libraries, died at his Baldwin City home after a long illness.

“On behalf of the University of Kansas, I offer my condolences to Michael Waxman’s family and friends, who include the many students he helped,” Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said.

Waxman had worked at KU since 1983. At the libraries, Waxman was responsible for statistical data consulting. He worked closely with faculty and graduate students in structuring statistical analyses for their research, often earning him mentions in the acknowledgement sections of theses and dissertations.

“Mickey was a valued and important member of our KU Libraries family, and his work at KU touched hundreds of faculty, staff and students,” Lorraine Haricombe, dean of libraries, said. “We were fortunate to have the opportunity to know him, both professionally and personally.”

The funeral will be at 1 p.m. today, July 21, at the Louis Memorial Chapel, 6830 Troost Ave., in Kansas City, Missouri.
