It is with sadness and a great sense of loss that we announce the death on 19 January 1992 of Dr. William E. Tigertt. The American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene will miss his counsel and expertise. Through a long career Bill made a lasting contribution to the Society and its goals. Clearly his value was most specifically expressed during his tenure as Editor of the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. Under his tutelage many positive changes were made. A monthly format was instituted and computer programs were developed and implemented which made it possible to manage and eventually publish an ever increasing number of manuscripts. His honesty and integrity were well-known and he provided the readership with a first-class publication which had international respect. He remained as Editor Emeritus and a very active member of the Editorial Board and was a ready source of advice and support which was found to be most valuable.
