My heart-felt condolences to you and all your family members on the passing of a valued colleague and friend, Dr. Alfred Haug.
I got to know Al from the mid-seventies, when I invited him to give guest lectures in my course on Advanced Microbial physiology 821. He did an excellent job. He was well prepared for the class, was in command of his subject, and spoke with authority and clarity. This interaction continued for three more years and after that I used to meet him on and off all these years when he came to deparmental meetings and seminars. I always found him to be a friendly person with a ready smile, sincere, and decent. He was well informed on a wide range of subjects and I used to enjoy my conversations with him. Similar to Alfred, I have a degree in Veterinary Medicine (from India) and later a Ph. D. at the University of Illinois. Furthermore, I taught the infectious diseases course to the DVM students in the CVM here for almost 35 years, and we often used to talk about veterinary microbiology as well. He was a man of integrity dedicated to excellence in what he does. He will be missed and may his soul rest in PEACE. May the Good Lord give you all the strength to bear his loss.
