General Interest Article
This issue of the Proceedings began to take form on June 17, 1973, at the University of Massachusetts when many of the former students of Professor Alexopoulos gathered to present him and Mrs. Alexopoulos with a "day of appreciation." The reading of scientific papers written by his students, the banquet that evening, and the preparation of this issue of the Proceedings which includes those papers was an honor for all of us because it provided an opportunity to express our appreciation to our warmly admired teacher. That the Board of the Iowa Academy of Science, especially the Editorial Board of the Proceedings, saw fit to join the celebration testifies to what we all know: the respect and admiration for Professor Alexopoulos' contributions to mycology and education are recognized by many others besides his former students.
