BERKELEY – Paul R. Gray, former executive vice chancellor and provost at the University of California, Berkeley and former dean and professor emeritus in Berkeley’s College of Engineering, has been honored with the naming of a distinguished faculty chair at Berkeley, endowed by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore and his wife, Betty.

The Moores endowed the Paul R. Gray Distinguished Chair in the College of Engineering to acknowledge Gray’s contributions to engineering and thank him for the leadership he provided to the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation as a longtime board member and as interim president, a post he held for one year.

The Palo Alto-based foundation, established by the Moores in 2000, develops outcome-based projects to improve quality of life, focusing on environmental conservation, patient care and science, around the world and at home in the San Francisco Bay Area. Gordon Moore is chairman of the foundation’s board of trustees.

“Betty and I are happy to endow this chair in Paul Gray’s honor,” said Moore. “This endowment acknowledges Paul’s considerable accomplishments in the field of engineering. In addition, it provides us with an opportunity to express our gratitude for his leadership on the board and as interim president of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.”
