Carbohydrate chemistry is not the most fashionable area of contemporary science, but Pugnacious Peter added that necessary sense of danger, excitement and flair to create accolytes around the world. Our work together on the Plant Cell Walls book, although extended in gestation rather longer than was probably required, took place in a memorable sequence of intense interludes in Georgia, weeks that enriched my life in many ways. Warm hearted, macho, intelligent and a loyal friend, he will certainly be missed.

Dr. Albersheim was a very tolerant parent for allowing the poker games hosted by his son Jim. His friendly acquiescence of our gatherings allowed us to engage in "male bonding" as we matured through our teenage years.....though perhaps not as quickly as we should have. Peter was such a modest man that I had no idea of his intellectual and academic accomplishments when he chatted with us knuckleheads. My sympathy to Jim and the rest of Peter's family. May Peter rest in peace and with admiration in our memories.

Dr. Albersheim was a force of nature in microbial and plant cell wall biochemistry, and we wanted to express our sincerest thanks for his many contributions to the field. Our sincerest condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues.

My first semester at CU in 1972 I took the beginning MCDB course taught by Dr. Albersheim, Abe Flexer, David McIntosh, and Mark Dubin. It was the best and most important course I ever took. As a team they presented cutting edge science most effectively. Still today I know half a dozen folks who took the course with me. We all agree it was quality education.

Garland Science, the publisher of Plant Cell Walls, express our sincere sympathy to Peter's family and colleagues at CCRC. Peter was an exceptional author--making sure the book was accurate, authoritative, and clearly written.
