With the passing of Dr. Thomas Carlow, the Journal of Neuro-Ophthalmology will be featuring an obituary as part of NANOS News. This will be printed in the September issue and available online prior to that time. We would also like to include a series of short professional vignettes from the membership. Some members have already been providing the following types of reflections; please feel free to provide one or both of these:

1) Short professional vignette. Please limit to 2-3 lines so that we can include as many as possible. Here is an example:

I met Tom in Cancun, and got to work closely with him, initially helping write joint Bylaws as NANOS and Walsh merged, and later on the Board.

2) Where and when did you attend your first NANOS meeting? Please provide the year, location and any reflections. Here is an example:

My first NANOS ski meeting was NANOS’ first “water ski” meeting- in Cancun. Although I did a Fellowship in 1984-5, and I had attended all the Walsh meetings from 1985 on, my Fellowship preceptor never mentioned NANOS to me until years later. I have never missed a meeting since 1989.
