The recent thread on the passing of A.C. Linnerud reminded me that I still hadn't distributed the article I wrote a couple of months ago following the death of another superlative measurer, Glen Lafarlette, who is one of the few people to have measured more courses than A.C.
Glen died on November 5, 2006, and I attended his funeral three days later. I wrote an article, intended to appear in the Winter 2006 issue of Measurement News. However, due to intervening events, Measurement News is currently defunct, and it seems that the Winter 2006 issue will never appear. I've been reluctant to post this because it serves as a reminder of recent unfortunate events leading to the cessation of publication of MN. Still, I think people might like to read this article about Glen.
You may download this article in pdf format from http://www.rrtc.net/lafarlette_tribute.pdf. Please note that although I wrote the text of the article and provided most of the graphics, the layout of this 3-page pdf file was done by Kevin Lucas in preparation for the Winter 2006 MN issue. (Note that this 3-page excerpt is the only part of the intended Winter 2006 MN that I've seen.)
