I unfortunately never had the chance to meet him but would have liked to. I
believe all of our libraries owe quite a bit of gratitude to him for his
contribution of writings and research. 

I recalled when the Newcastle quake hit Australia some time following our
Loma Prieta Quake, he was interviewed about how rare it was to see a M5.6
quake in that part of Australia. He referenced how his parents or
grandparents only talked of one strong quake in Australia. I guess that's
where he grew up as a child?

  ohhhh wow  :(     what a sad loss to family, friends and associates,
my condolences to all

  I met Bruce in the mid 1990's when he visited Otago university, Dunedin,
NZ where I did my geology degree. Bruce did a couple of guest speaker talks
.... one was on the response of the golden gate bridge to quakes

It was so good to meet the man that really brought seismology home to me
during the late ' 70's and ' 80's through his publications.

thanks  Bruce
