Linda joined IIASA in 1992 as part of the Office of Sponsored Research, where she provided valuable assistance and improvement to countless research proposals. Many of you had the pleasure of working with Linda during her years at OSR. Yet Linda will be most remembered for her tireless efforts building and expanding the role of the IIASA Society, the association of IIASA alumni. She took over the coordination of the IIASA Society in 1998, and soon became its heart and soul.  Even during her poor health last year she continued her dedication to the Society. Through personal assistance, correspondence and creative connections to present and former IIASA staff all over the world she embodied the best of the ‘IIASA Spirit’.  Highlights were the IIASA Alumni Days that Linda organized both in Vienna and with NMOs abroad. Her commitment and dedication to the Society were the essential elements for many of us in retaining a continuing invaluable connection with the Institute. She will be sorely missed. Our sincerest condolences go to her husband Raoul and their children. More
