WHITMAN ALAN R.
62, former Carnegie Mellon adjunct Professor and management consultant, died unexpectedly on April 4, 2010 at his home in Mt. Lebanon. Alan was born in Pittsburgh, PA and received his BS in Industrial Management/ Engineering from the University of Tennessee in 1969 and an MS in Management and PhD requirements in Engineering Management from Clemson University in 1972. He received advance education for Key Executives at both MIT and Harvard University in 1988 as well as the Advanced Management Program at Stanford University in 1990. Alan held positions at Westinghouse Electric, Consolidated Coal Company, UPMC Health System, and served an adjunct professor at Carnegie Mellon University where he designed, developed, and instructed the Health Systems Management course. Alan was a senior member of the Institute of Industrial Engineers, Alpha Kappa Psi Professional fraternity, the University of Tennessee Alumni Association and President's Club, the Century Club and the Tennessee Society. An avid fan of the Tennessee Volunteers athletic programs, Alan could be seen wearing his treasured Tennessee national championship football ring and his orange Volunteer athletic jacket. He was a member of the Westminster Presbyterian Church of Upper St, Clair where he served as an elder. A man with a servant's heart, Alan constantly sought ways in which he could provide help and assistance to the unemployed, to the less fortunate, or to his friends and their associates. He enjoyed doing "the little things" that ended up having great impact. A memorial service will be held May 1, 2010 at 1:00 PM at the Westminster Presbyterian Church with internment at the church's Columbarium. Memorial contributions in lieu of flowers may be sent to The University of Tennessee, 600 Henley Street, Knoxville, TN 37996-4103. Please indicate the Athletic department as the designated area, Alan's name as honoree and an address to which any notification of gift should be sent.
