With great sadness, I share the news of the passing of one of the most creative, inspiring, and vibrant inorganic chemists I ever knew: Richard A. Andersen. Dick was my graduate advisor at Berkeley in the 1980’s. He died on Sunday, June 16, 2019. I miss him already.
Betsy and I are feeling chills (they’re multiplying and we’re losing control) that come along with the close of our summer 2019 content-building workshop at Smith College. We are amazed at how quickly the last few days passed. (It was like greased lightnin'!)

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had the familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
If you were wishing and hoping to get to the VIPEr workshop at the GLRM earlier this month but just couldn't swing the travel, you have another opportunity coming up this Friday at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting in beautiful Baltimore!
The workshop will be run by Kate Plass and myself on Friday, May 31st, from 9-noon. Although registration for MARM has closed, if you are planning to attend the meeting, there is still room in the workshop, and we would love to have you!
