never-ending compilation is dedicated to these great people, still here
or gone, who have pushed and/or helped me on my way. All my
love to each of you. MLB
Johnson [1922-2007], my mama. She raised me through times so hard
that all we had was grits and wild mustard greens to eat, and one of our
own chickens on Sunday. She put me through school and college, and
never called me out for being a lazy student, which I was. Nobody
ever showed more patience than she did.
Hazel Haughton Wilkinson, my mama's sister, has
shown all the Haughtons, Wilkinsons and Browns the meaning of true love and
personal devotion to church, family and countless friends. Her
great heart failed in September, 2014, and we lost her to the ages.
Kristin Countess de Lichtervelde, IOC's OceanTeacher project office
manager, has always been kind and wise, helping many hundreds of
scientists and students to get to Ostend from every corner of the world,
for various purposes and in spite of amazing bureaucratic difficulties.
Unnsteinn Stefansson [1922-2004], IOC/Duke University/Iceland
University, first opened my eyes to earth sciences with his amazingly
detailed summer lectures at the lab in Beaufort, NC. Later he
helped me on my way and got me into grad school, his old university in
Withrow [1948-2013], USN/NOAA Corps/IOC/USCGR, picked me out of the
crowd to help begin the old OceanPC training program at IODE. He
was an amazingly effective and moderating leader for a little, almost
unfunded, program peopled by mad zealots full of big ideas.
