To all my friends in the Chlamy community

from Elizabeth Harris

Last week I received a wonderful package, including an album containing photographs and messages from many of you, a framed copy of the cover of the Chlamydomonas montage that appeared on the cover of Genetics in 2008, a Chlamy pin, a very generous check that I’ll use to buy something special for my retirement, and a video of the tribute you gave me in absentia at the recent meeting. (It’s probably a good thing I wasn’t there to hear the applause – I would have dissolved in tears!)

The preface to the album is a letter of thanks from our little friends, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii Dangeard, which I’ve learned is “as told to” Ursula Goodenough. It’s much too good to keep to myself, and I have her permission to share it here: pdf file

Many, many thanks to all of you!
