Professor emeritus dies at 91

Former professor emeritus of biochemistry Max Schultze, 91, died on March 25 in his Albuquerque home.
Schultze began his career at the University in 1946, in the then Department of Agricultural Biochemistry. His research ranged from animal nutrition to biochemistry of toxic substances.
A Switzerland native, “Schultze was exacting, precise and ahead of schedule,” said John Anderson, a professor in the College of Biological Sciences who worked with Schultze for about six years.
In 1974, after 28 years at the University, Schultze retired at the age of 67 with the title emeritus,’ for his lengthy tenure.
Many of his former students went on to successful careers in education and the biochemistry industry. Anderson said Schultze was a major adviser to 14 students and directed them to their doctorate degrees.
Schultze left no survivors and requested there be no memorial service.
The College of Biological Sciences is accepting donations in his name.
