Bill Scarfe has asked me to write an obituary for Francis that will be aimed at the radiology community. I just e-mailed him that I had spoken to Rose (his wife) and his son at the visitation yesterday about this and will be contacting them next week to start this. So, more to come.

Thank you for posting the notice about Francis Sippy, Axel.

Since he has been retired for so long, many of the "younger generation" may not be familiar with him and his work. He was one of only two (that I know of) non-dentists (the other was Albert G. Richards) to be president of AAOMR (formerly AADR). He was a co-author of a textbook of dental radiology with Olaf Langland and Robert Langlais in the '80s.

Francis was active in the Academy at the time that I started attending meetings and I remember him as always being very welcoming. I always enjoyed talking with him whenever I saw him there.

Francis Sippy was a past president of the AAOMR (back when it was the AADR). Francis was at The University of Iowa until the year before I arrived. I had known him for many years prior to that.
