I am very sad about Bill's death. We were graduate students together at KU and shared a major professor. Bill helped me isolate a hypocalcemic factor from teleost fish using liquid chromatography and then analyze the results of experiments which I conducted. He was one of my mentors and a friend. We went 'herp' hunting together and shared many other good times along with other student colleagues we knew, Please send my condolences to his family for me. Barry F Sherr Oregon
