Both Kay and I are very sad to hear of Art's passing. We met Art and Sylvia when I took up my first posting in Bangladesh in 1979. Throughout the years Art was always ready to offer support and advice on issues that arose at work and on adapting to life overseas. He was extremely generous and always met you with a smile. He was a wonderful man and will be truly missed.

Art, you will be missed. Our 2 lengthy conversations about development, research, books, politics, and more were a highlight of my doctoral research phase. Thank you forever, for mentoring me through that period of deep inquiry. Your intellect, compassion and generosity continue to inspire. Who knew that when we met in the early 1990's in Zimbabwe that our lives would cross again, and for me in such a profound way? Art, you will be missed.

I first met Art at the airport in Dacca when he arrived as my new Head of Post. We last met when he visited Thailand as Asia Branch VP in 1986. Over those years he was a leader and a mentor who inspired us with his warmth, his kindness and his sense of humour. He gave us the courage to make the right decisions. I remember him with affection.

Sincere condolences to Sylvia and Art's extended family. It was a pleasure to know, converse with, and deal with Art in Bangladesh and, subsequently, in CIDA. And Sylvia, I still enjoy 2 paintings you helped me buy in Bangladesh that proudly hang in our living room and upstairs hallway. Thanks to you and Art for some fond memories long ago.
