Formatted abstract
On Dec 13, 2010, the phycological community lost one of its most distinguished members, with the passing of Jack L. McLachlan. McLachlan was born April 1, 1930, in Huron, SD, and lived in that state until his family moved to Anacortes, WA, in 1938. His postsecondary education was undertaken first at Western Washington College in Bellingham and then at Oregon State College, Corvallis. There he earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees, completing his PhD in 1957 on culture and autecology of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, under the direction of Harry K. Phinney. Teaching was a large part of McLachlan's career and, like most National Research Council of Canada scientists, he had cross-appointments to local universities as a lecturer and student research supervisor, the latter being supported in part by his external research grants. Among other major honors McLachlan received were election to the Royal Society of Canada (1979) and the George Lawson Medal from the Canadian Botanical Association, for cumulative lifetime contributions to Canadian botany (1992).
