It is my sad duty to inform you that our colleague Dr. Theodore M.
Barkley died suddenly this Saturday morning, at the age of 70. No one
expected such a sudden departure, and it comes as a shock to us all,
particularly the FNA Compositae Editors, since we had been working
intensely with him for the last 2 years and more.
His dedication to the Flora of North America project and the FNA
Association, as well as to
publication of the Compositae volumes, will be well remembered.
Please inform colleagues who might have known him well and would not yet
have been informed.
President, Flora of North America Association
PS: He is probably already trading bad jokes with Art Cronquist in the
herbarium in the sky (as he was fond of saying). I am sad he did not
see the FNA Comps finished. L.
