Mary McEvoy’s professional contributions were many – she joined the University of Minnesota in 1990, she served as director of the early childhood special education program, she directed the Center for Early Education and Development from 1993 to 1999, and she chaired the Department of Educational Psychology from 1999 to 2002. Her research focused on social interaction and inclusion for young children with disabilities, prevention and early intervention for problem behaviors, environmental factors affecting development of children exposed prenatally to drugs and alcohol, and development of efficient tools for describing preschoolers’ development, particularly in early literacy. She was a gifted teacher and an effective mentor and cherished colleague to many.  - Scott McConnell
