Summary

The scientific community lost a remarkable resource when William T. Golden, for years the treasurer of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) among many other things, passed away on 7 October of this year at the age of 97. Bill had a stunning career, well positioned at the juncture of the science he loved and the public interest to which he was so dedicated. He will be missed for many reasons, not least because he was a treasury of knowledge and recollection about science and public policy.
