With a delay of more than three years I got the sad information that Douglas B. Hawthorne, author of "Men and Women of Space," passed away on September 25, 2009.

I had the pleasure to work with him for nearly two years.

This was truly sad news. I have referred to Douglas's fine and authoritative book many, many times over the years to assist in compiling biographies. It is a great and valuable resource, and he is to be congratulated for the effort he put into his research.

I hadn't heard about this. I worked with Doug for years, doing Russian translation for him for his ambitious, and sadly never-published second edition of MWS. He was an interesting guy; prickly and difficult, but also brilliant and funny. We parted ways several years ago, but my time working with him made me a better and more knowledgeable person. — Dave
