It is both an honor and a pleasure for me to comment at this Symposium honoring the work and influence of professor Edward Zukoski, of Cal Tech. I first met the good professor in Tokyo at my first UJNR meeting in May fo 1982. I have experienced the influence of Professor Zukoski in a number of modes - as a keen researcher and superb experimentalist: as a source of technical inspiration; as a backer and supporter of the cause of fire research in the nation; as warm, caring person and good humored friend; and even as a prod when in his judgment, I, as a relative newcomer to fire research management, have needed his "guidance".
