A death

From: Jerry Podany <jpodany<-at->

This sad news comes from Yannis Maniatis, President of ASMOSIA.
Norman Herz, founder of ASMOSIA, has passed away.

Norman began the Association for the Study of Marble and Other
Stones In Antiquity (ASMOSIA) by organizing the first meeting at Il
Ciocco, Tuscany, Italy in 1988, and since that event continuously
inspired those who had an interest in the provenance and study of
marble. He was the first President of ASMOSIA and a great enthusiast
and supporter of archaeometric studies. It was Norman who first
introduced the use of the stable isotope analysis to the field of
archaeology and conservation for the provenance of marble.

All who knew Norman, or benefitted from his research, knew a kind
and charming man, with a lively presence and a characteristically
warm Brooklyn accent.

The ASMOSIA Executive Committee has decided to honor the memory of
Norman Herz by establishing the 'Norman Herz Prizes" for the two
best Student Posters at future ASMOSIA meetings.
