Hybridizer Albert Lauck ( -1960)
Hybridizer Albert Lauck (1904-1960¹)
Toledo, Ohio, USA
A member of the AIS Board of Directors since 1958 and chairman of the Slides Committee, Mr. Lauck served the Society faithfully and well. Apparently recovering nicely from a severe shock suffered earlier in the spring, it was the hope of his many friends that Al would soon be completely well again. He was respected by other members of the Board for his sound judgment in policy matters and for his willingness to assume duties and responsibilities of Board membership. His passing on June 8 leaves a vacancy in the official AIS family and a loss to the Society that will be hard to fill.—L.F.R. [AIS Bulletin 158(July 1960), 14.]
