† Leonard Charles ('Len') Ferrington, Jr
28 July 1948 - 11 September 2021

Very sadly, we are having to bid farewell to yet another long-standing and distinguished member of our community, Len Ferrington, whose passing is an unexpected blow.

From Minnesota I have been sent links to two online notices,
a longer one (surely authorized by the family) https://www.holcombhenryboom.com/obituary/leonard-ferrington-jr
and a shorter one in a major newspaper https://www.startribune.com/obituaries/detail/0000402917/?fullname=dr-leonard-c-ferrington,-jr

† L. C. (Clive) V. Pinder
6 December 1943 - 31 July 2021


Dear all,

sadly, the chironomid research community has lost another very influential and respected colleague, Clive Pinder, who passed away aged 77 in his adopted and beloved county of Dorset (UK).

In Dr. Pinder's honour, the CHIRONOMUS Journal of Chironomidae Research has just published an appreciation by Peter S. Cranston; please see https://www.ntnu.no/ojs/index.php/chironomus/article/view/4101/3752.
