He developed the first courses in limnology and oceanography at UC Davis, served as Chair of the Division of Environmental Studies from 1988-1992, and was founding Director of the Institute of Ecology, serving from 1966-1969 and again in 1990-92. Prior to his 52-year tenure at UC Davis, he earned Bachelor and Masters degrees from the University of Illinois and a Ph.D. in Limnology-Fisheries from the University of Michigan. He has supervised 100+ graduate students and 34 postdoctoral researchers during his five decades at UC Davis. His single most important and sustained contribution is the five decades of research on Lake Tahoe. Professor Goldman was Director of the Lake Tahoe and Castle Lake Research Groups and has pursued long-term ecological research`simultaneously at Lake Tahoe and Castle Lake, California, since 1958. Professor Goldman’s career work has been honored with the 1998 Albert Einstein World Award of Science, presented at a formal ceremony held in New Zealand.
