In Memoriam - Donald C. Gasaway

Posted: May 5, 2021

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of one of our most beloved members, Don Gasaway, on Monday April 5, 2021.  Many of us were friends of Don, students of Don, disciples of Don.  Don was the reason for the establishment of NHCA’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and its first recipient. For those of you who attended our 2019 conference, you were graced with the opportunity to hear Don orate from the “pulpit” and impart his zeal for that work we do. Elliott Berger will share a full obituary in an upcoming issue of the Spectrum. Meanwhile, Don’s family suggests that contributions his friends wish to make should be directed to the NHCA Scholarship Foundation.

We all know that spiders are sensitive to disturbances in their webs – certain movements may indicate a tasty bug has been snagged and is available for lunch. To better understand the spider’s world, MIT scientists have used laser imaging, and some artistic license, to convert spider web vibrations into sounds we can hear. Read more about their process and enjoy the music created from study of the spider’s web. Click here
