Wally Huffman passed away

We are saddened by the death of Wally Huffman. He was an important part of the ICABR family since its beginning. His papers and presentations contributed to our understanding of the impact of agricultural technology on farmers and consumers and how consumer attitudes towards technology are formed. His questions and comments improved our discussions and research. He helped in the planning of our conferences. He will be missed. Our condolences go out to his family.
