The School of Social Sciences and Department of Economics invite you to come celebrate the life of Jules Margolis, artist and economist, at a Memorial Reception. The UCI professor emeritus of economics passed away Friday, March 16, from kidney failure at 91. Alternately known as Julie, Julius or Jules, depending on the era, Margolis is described by colleagues as a founding figure in economics, a person of boundless energy and a Renaissance man. He was recruited by UCI in 1976 to strengthen the scholarly prominence of social sciences on the young campus by attracting top economists. He also helped establish UCI’s Center for Global Peace & Conflict Studies, which hosts an annual lecture series in his name and will dedicate a seminar room in his honor.
