About this Book
Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 56.
"The roses seem to have a mildew," Lucy said as I drank my morning coffee. "I'll ask Hugh about it," flashed through my mind, but not past my lips since he's been dead for over two years.
I wonder if this isn't typical for his friends and colleagues. Hugh's ability and willingness to help, his unselfish cooperation not just in research but in life, are what made him special to those who worked closely with him. Many who read this volume are familiar with the varied contributions he made to rock mechanics and to high?]pressure research. Consistent with his reputation, the things that impressed me when I first worked with Hugh in 1969 were his enthusiasm for work and his ability to keep pressure systems working well. Although these qualities still come to mind when I think of Hugh, the thing that usually remains is a warm feeling of pleasure at having been his friend and shared part of his life.
