Abstract:

Tragic events are sometimes so impressed upon our consciousness that we never forget where we were when the events occurred: President Kennedy's assassination and the shuttle Challenger explosion are two such events. This impact also holds true for personal tragedies. One I shall never forget occurred at 7:55 AM, Eastern Standard Time, 24 February 1986, when I received word by phone that Harry Hoogstraal had just died in Cairo, Egypt. To state it simply, we have lost one of the outstanding medical entomologists of this or any generation and, without question, the greatest authority on ticks and tickborne diseases who ever lived.
