Thomas J. Hayden was the Director of Laboratories for the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Chief College Laboratory Technician. He served Queens College and the Department for 40 years. One of his most important legacies was his love of and skill in presenting lecture demonstrations to undergraduates, and the yearly Holiday show he spearheaded continues in his memory.
