Hi Ron Osgood, Roxanne, and other VisComm folks on this list,
I second Ron’s tribute to Bob T. He and Herb Z. recruited me for the very first VC summer conference when I happened to talk to them at a Western States conference a very long time ago. I am hugely grateful for Bob and Herb for getting me to join the VC family. Tiemens had a wonderful legacy with Vis Com and he treated everyone who participated with warmth and genuine interest. Former students of Bob and his scholarly collaborators who engaged with Vis Com continue his uniquely humanistic influence on the group.
