In memoriam Karl Maramorosch (1915-2016)

Maramorosch_KarlKarl Maramorosch passed away on May 9 in Poland while visiting friends. An eminent virologist, entomologist and plant pathologist, Karl was a wealth of information, always willing to talk and often in many languages. His kindness and dedication were unparalleled. He was often the first to arrive in the Entomology Department despite being well into “retirement.” This unique scholar will be sorely missed and our condolences to his friends and family.

His obituary by Professor Gaugler, a Celebratory Tribute and his Wikipedia page. Below is a Vimeo video with Karl before one of the Maramorosch Seminars:
