The passing of Evert I. Schlinger
Evert I. Schlinger passed away during the lunar eclipse in the early morning of Wednesday, October 8, 2014. He was a giant of a man in both stature and accomplishment. He fought for advancing science and improving the environment all of his life. He had a lazar-like ability to dissect problems and find solutions. He was gentle, caring, yet held strong convictions. His work in the systematics of the small-headed fly family Acroceridae was deep and provided the foundation for future workers; his work in biological control was less known but profoundly influenced the course and development of integrated pest management. Perhaps his greatest gift to science was a cadre of students that have made impacts in many areas of entomology and education. For me, he will always be remembered as my best friend and a great mentor.

I had the honour of meeting him on several occasions in Australia and San Fransisco, (for lunch) and even co-authoring a chapter on Acroceridae in the Catalog of the Diptera of the Australasian and Oceanian Regions.
He provided funds for many dipterists over the years to pursue various taxonomic studies and his legacy is profound and long-lasting.
