    Lovely tribute to an impressive man. We were saddened to hear the news this weekend. My most vivid memory of him was a conversation I had with him outside the Hamilton Grill in Lambertville– and, yes, he was waving the cigar..

    I am not a scientist. But I met him in 1986 because of my wife who was making post-doctorate in his departmant.

    He suddenly asked me “You must be lucky with your lots of wifes in Turkey!”. I smiled and said, “No professor, unfortunately I am not, due to Ataturk’s civil laws before my born.”.

    I still remember his warm laugh loudly while he was getting smoky.
    I will miss that great man, wishing God’s mercy for him.

    It is a big loss not only for his beloved wife Mrs. Priscilla Farnsworth and his family, but also for the Pharmacognosy World.
    During my post-doctoral studies in PCRPS, College of Pharmacy at UIC between 1986-88, I have witnessed that he was interested in all problems of his students and post-docs. I will always remember him with good memories, such as suddenly stopping by the lab to invite us for a lunch or dinner, and to cheer us with his unexpected jokes.
    We are indebted to him for his valuable contributions to the pharmacognosy, traditional and herbal medicine and drug discovery researches.

    We will miss Prof. Farnsworth as a great scientist and humanist man.
