Memories of Karl


 Contribution from Yukohiro Ozaki





My best memories are photographic and here are a few with Karl.

Karl, his wife, Fred, and me at EAS in 2001. I received the EAS award for NIR spectroscopy. Karl and Fred encouraged me a lot and we had a very nice time together. 

Karl kindly gave a lecture at School of Science and Technology. Kwansei Gakuin University. He talked about the history, basic principles, characteristics, and applications of NIR spectroscopy. We were all very much moved by his enthusiastic lecture. 
After this lecture we went to a Japanese restaurant nearby to have a wonderful dinner together.

Karl at my lab in 2003. From left to right, Prof. Yiping Du, Karl, me, and Dr. Sumaporn Kasemsumran.

Karl looked around my lab. and enjoyed very much discussing with young people. He was also an excellent educator. 

 Karl was always a gentle father. He did encourage young people.

He had a number of children in research, grand children, and great-grand-children, all over the world.
