Helen and I send you our condolences. I very much enjoyed working with Howard as his vice president of our newly reorganized California Psychiatric Association. He was an activist and a go-getter. It was under his leadership that we reorganized to have the officers elected at large and to help our state be more coordinated and effective in dealing with our statewide economic, political and judicial challenges. I followed him proudly as the next president, with great appreciation of the model he had set for those of us who would follow. You and your family can be very proud of the many contributions that Howard made to our profession.
Sincerely, Cap Thomson, MD
