The Association is greatly saddened to learn of the death of Helen Nader, who was an influential early member of the Association and served as its General Secretary from 1998-2000. Helen was an accomplished scholar, a generous mentor, and a kind and gracious person, and she will be greatly missed. (A full obituary will be posted here shortly.)

Valentina Tikoff is in contact with Helen’s niece; if you would like to pass along a message to her family, please contact Valentina at vtikoff@depaul.edu.

Clinton Young, the editor of the ASPHS newsletter, is also gathering memories and remembrances of Helen for the newsletter.  If you would like to contribute, please contact Clint at young@uamont.edu no later than October 25.
