Passages acknowledges colleagues who have passed on during the year. Please join us in remembering two members of our community.

David M. Fagerstrom
David M. Fagerstrom, faculty director of the Science Library for 29 years, passed away Dec. 10, 2008. Fagerstrom, a well-informed, forward-thinking manager, brought the Science Library to maturity as a rich, user-focused research resource. He held degrees in biology and library science. His career included positions at four major universities prior to joining the CU-Boulder Libraries in 1981. He was a member of several professional associations, Kiwanis International, and the U.S./China Peoples Friendship Association.

Gary L. Gaile
Professor Gary Gaile passed away Feb. 13, 2009. He was 63 years old. Gary was a great geographer and a fine human being. He touched us with his whimsy, his humor, and most of all, his warmth and decency. In many ways Gary embodied the spirit of the department of geography. He will be greatly missed here and around the world.

Those wishing to honor Gary Gaile’s memory might consider contributing to the African Watoto Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by his CU Ph.D. student Dr. Helen Ruth Aspaas to help women and children in Kenya, Uganda, and in Sudanese refugee camps (c/o Mrs. Diana Boland, Exec. Dir., 13917 State Hwy. 140, Hesperus, CO 81326, phone 970-259-3762, and/or to the Gary L. Gaile DART Field Research Fellowship to support M.A. and Ph.D. students at CU-Boulder doing field research in developing areas (checks to CU Foundation, with note: for Gary L. Gaile DART Fellowship, attn: Bev Stokes, 1305 University Avenue, Boulder, 80302).
