Not sure what to say?

Otto and I got along well because of mutual regard and respect. We genuinely liked him and Jeanette. He never forgot that our primary mission was to serve an educated public. He was also fun, which means a lot in these troubled times. I'll miss him, and I'm glad I knew him.

It was my honor to have been mentored by Dr. Bauer during my tenure as Provost at Clarkson College. His leadership on the Board of Directors and behind the scene enriched Clarkson more than anyone will know. I share in your loss knowing that Dr. Bauer's gifts to society will be expressed on this earth long after we join him. A better man would be difficult to find.-Terry Dixon

During 35 years on the UNO faculty, I served on many search committees to select new colleagues. Many of these experiences brought promising people to campus. But none was more rewarding than the choice of Otto Bauer to serve as Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs. He was among many who served the university well, but few did so with such grace and good humor.

Thanks for your Military Service to Our Country.
Past Commander V.F.W.

I deeply mourn Otto Bauer. Although we worked together for years, he was much more than a colleague--he was a dear and supportive friend. After his departure from UNO, we continued to exchange letters periodically. He was truly a "man for all seasons"; he could carry on a learned and astute conversation about a myriad of topics. I will forever treasure the warmth, acceptance, and support that he extended to me. Bob Woody
