Hal Clement, 1992

Hal Clement's 70th birtday party, Disclave 1992.
A classic picture of writer Hal Clement (real name, Harry Stubbs), who died suddenly on 10/29/2003. Hal was 81 and diabetic, but he was still extremely sharp and active. He was a convention panelist in Colorado the weekend before he died. He was not a really prolific writer, but he wrote one of the field's seminal works, Mission of Gravity.
I knew him pretty well for over 20 years. Back in the mid-'80s, a bunch of us named him "honorary grandfather of NESFA" as none of his children had had kids yet, and we had some he could "borrow." He was always very much in touch with all the current goings on in science and in the science fiction field. Hal may have a record for appearing on the most number of panels at a World Science Fiction convention - something like 17 panels over a 5 day period.

As Harry Stubbs, he taught chemistry and the love of science to generations of Milton Academy students (and to two years of students at Major Victor Edwards High School in West Boylston, MA during the late '40s).
Donations in Harry's memory may be made to Joslin Diabetes Development Office or St. Michael's Episcopal Church, 112 Randolph Ave, Milton MA 02186. Or go give a pint of blood in memory of Hal - remember, he managed to give about 25 gallons during his many years as a blood donor.
