First met Ralph as I started my industrial hygiene career at Argonne National Lab in 1976. His example and advice in practical problem solving served me very well throughout a 42 year industrial hygiene career (35 of them at Argonne). He will be fondly remembered as he blazes a trail for us in that new territory. John T. Davis
