Dr. Hannah Croasdale died at the age of 93 on July 28.  Many of us will
remember her with great fondness and admiration.  She was a Professor of
Biological Sciences at Dartmouth College until her retirement and also had
longstanding ties with the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA.
At the MBL, she served as the collector of algae and of course her thesis
(1927, Penn) with Randolph Taylor was about the algae of the Woods Hole
area.  Her knowledge of Desmids was invaluable. Her enthusiasm for
phycology was enormous and she transmitted that enthusiasm to her many
students and friends.
  She will be missed.
