I didn't know Tony very well but have met, dined and e-mailed back and forth with him about research matters in the past and was deeply saddened when he suddenly passed away a little over a year ago. The field lost a great leader and I think it is great that the IEAA is honoring Tony in this way!

More about Tony via The Australian.
