This is so sad. Her intro to ex phys was one of the best classes I ever took, and I still remember many things from her class, even though it has been decades. Dr. Clarkson was always such a cheerful person in class and very animated. She made learning fun!

Ah, I had so hoped to get out to Amherst and see Priscilla again. It was simply a case of to know Priscilla was to love her. She was a wonder. She was able to make Physiology of Exercise exciting and fun. I can still remember Q=HR X SV, oh so many years ago. Priscilla was truly a bright spark on this earth. I had asked many folks to send her hugs on my behalf over the last few months, I hope that she got them. It is so very sad to think that lovely smile will have to live in our hearts and memories now. Her energy is out there for all of us to now be better,kinder,more loving people. My deepest condolences to all of her family and friends.

Regretfully, I did not have the pleasure to meet Prof. Clarkson face to face, but nevertheless she became a significant person in my life. As a post graduate, I was inspired by her work into exercise induced muscle damage (and that of her colleague (Prof.) Ken Nosaka). At the time Priscilla's published insights were critical in framing a number of my studies, as she was unequivocally THE "guru" in the field. To my amazement, she accepted the invitation to review my doctoral thesis, and provided some particularly inspiring comments that made a significant impact on me as a young investigator. Science has lost a great leader.

Dr. Clarkson was a favorite professor of mine during my years at UMass. She ignited my passion for kinesiology and exercise science, a relatively new major at that time. I am so honored to have had many classes with her, and she is a deep part of my wonderful memories of my college years. My deepest sympathies to her family, a very special lady who touched the lives of so many.

I will always have incredible admiration for Dr. Clarkson and I know that there are legions of students and alumni who will continue to be inspired by her legacy. From the moment I met her I knew she was someone I wanted to emulate. Her brilliance coupled with her kindness and passion for her students was a rare combination. She will be dearly missed, fondly remembered and never forgotten.
