I came to know Wes only through working on the project Cornelius Lanczos Collected Published Papers with Commentaries at NCSU. I was immediately impressed by his gentle personality and scholarly leadership. Without him trying to pull all ends together, we could not possibly complete this mammoth six-volume, 3200-page collection. Thank you, Wes. Though you are a physicist and I am a mathematician, you have set an excellent example for me.
