Raymond Bice was a beloved professor of psychology at the University of Virginia for 50 years. He passed away December 22, 2011 at Martha Jefferson Hospital at the age of 93. In addition to psychology, Professor Bice was also the associate dean in the College of Arts & Sciences (1958-1969), assistant to the president (1969-1990), secretary to the Rector and Board of Visitors (1969-1990) and University history officer (1991-1998).
An entrepreneurial lecturer, Bice was perhaps best-known for his "Bice Devices," devices created for each lecture to demonstrate a key piece of information. Bice Devices extended beyond the classroom as Raymond created UVa's first computer in 1955 and a burglar alarm for the president's office.
Bice was born in La Crosse, Wisconsin on July 26, 1918. After serving as a Navy ensign in World War II, he came to UVa in 1948. Married for nine years to Zula Mae Baber, a nursing professor at UVa who passed away in 1966 from cancer, Bice had no children.
