This book was originally concepted in 2002 as a biography that would be compiled with Niederhauser’s help and guidance. Due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts of both editors and the tragic death of Niederhauser in 2005, the book changed course slightly to become the autobiographical tribute that it is today. Niederhauser’s comments and commentary from earlier versions of the publication were used as the foundation of the book, with a special emphasis on findings taken from his numerous published and unpublished notes and papers.
The finished result is a colorful historical account of a great man who deserves every bit of honor this book gives him. It is a great read for history buffs as well as those with a passion for plant pathology. The story of Neiderhauser’s life is interlaced with his own commentary as well as tales and photographs of his life and his many contributions to the science community.
