Professor John Henry Steelman retired at the end of the Fall 2011 semester after nearly 26 years in the Mathematics Department.

Steelman came to IUP as an associate professor in 1986 and was promoted to professor in 1992. His dedication to students, colleagues, and the university was widely known, and will be missed.

Steelman was a frequent contributor to the Problems and Solutions section of the American Mathematical Monthly.  He played a leadership role in the High School Mathematics Competition held annually at IUP, for which he supervised the construction of scores of mathematics problems. He was also active in the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties.

Acting with the local Indiana Players is among his other interests.
