Hi all,

  Dr. John Lahr, USGS Emeritus Geophysicist, passed away on March 14,
2009, at the age of 64, from malignant brain cancer.

  John was very active in putting seismometers in schools around the
country through the Seismographs in Schools Program of the
Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS), for which he
taught teacher workshops, traveled to schools throughout the country,
worked with many more teachers via e-mail and phone, and helped in the
development and trouble-shooting of the equipment and software. He was
also mentor to and colleague of many of us in the PSN network. We
shall miss him greatly.

  John's obituary was published March 27 in the Corvallis Gazette Times:

  Please also see the following web site, which John had set up for
his wife, Jan, to chronicle his struggle with cancer:

  I believe his web site, is to be maintained by
