Jim was known to the world as an outstanding geneticist,teacher, and statesmen – but to many of us in the Laboratory of Genetics, he was simply one of the best colleagues one could ask for. He was in his office most days – up until the end of his life – reading papers, writing manuscripts, and keeping up on the latest news in and out of science. He seemed perpetually in a good mood, and could talk to anyone about any subject matter. He always asked the most interesting and insightful questions at seminars, yet was so down to earth that he managed to include everyone in the discussion. He will be sorely missed.
On these pages, we have compiled a list of articles, tributes, and
stories about Jim.
Curriculum Vitae of James F. Crow is available.
