Richard F. Caris, a friend and enthusiastic supporter of the LSST project, died on August 9th at his home in Scottsdale, Arizona. He was 81.

Richard’s $2.3 million gift to the LSST Corporation marked the first philanthropic support of the novel 8.4-meter diameter primary and tertiary (M1M3) mirror for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) and enabled the purchase of the special high purity glass. The M1M3 mirror is now complete.
