There are some people who make the world a better place and Ted was definitely one of them. His passion for life and his profession was a gift to anyone who was associated with him. Ted's classes in the 90's and the trip to Eygpt in 97 were highlights of my time at USC. Ted will be missed.

My thoughts are with the Rathbun family. Ted will be greatly missed.

Having had the privilege of working with Ted on a couple of field projects decades ago, I can only say he was the best supervisor I had ever encountered. The atmosphere was always convivial and he was able to manage the crew with his humor and kindness. I always thought he should have done radio with his fabulous voice. He and Babette were such a team. I know he was a great mentor, father and husband. He was also the best of men. Jeanne Metropol Haight

Ted Rathbun was an extremely nice person during the field work he led with Roxie Walker at the American University in Cairo, Egypt in 1987. He had a charming southern accent, and he was a good dancer too. He taught us, about 8 of us, the two-step, and we danced on the boat we all lived in, anchored on the Nile. He was always professional, but tried to keep an eye on us all without being patronizing or overly familiar. Really upstanding guy.

Ted was the best. Best forensic anthropologist, mentor, teacher, & friend. A kinder, funnier man there never was. We mourn his loss so deeply, a hole in our personal & professional lives that can't be filled.
