It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Ed Robb. Dr. Robb joined the department in 1971 and retired in 2002. During that time he ran the Economic Policy Analysis Research Center ( EPARC), for which he was the founding director. He also taught public finance to generations of MU economics students. After retirement Ed put his economic skills to work as a Missouri state legislator, representing the 24th Missouri district from 2004-2008. During that time he served as vice-chairman of the important House Budget Committee. In November, 2010 he was elected Boone County Presiding Commissioner, a position he held at the time of his death. Ed was loved by his colleagues and students for his great sense of humor and encyclopedic knowledge of state budget matters. He is survived by his wife Rosa, five children, and six grandchildren.
