Reflections on Mass Spectrometry and Other Issues (pp. 99-125 ) $0.00
Authors:  Simone König
Abstract:
Some of the best times of my five year postdoc at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, I had during lunch with my boss, Henry M. Fales (Hank). About seventy at the time, he had fantastic stories to share about his life with organic chemistry and mass spectrometry. They are too good to be forgotten and Hank kindly agreed to put them on paper. I collected some information shortly after I left his lab in summer of 1999 and worked it up for this publication in summer of 2005. It might interest readers among the mass spectrometrists who find the history of their technique as fascinating as I do. A bibliography is attached as a timeline.

Hank is one of the pioneers in biological mass spectrometry and he worked at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute since 1954 after graduating from Rutgers University. He helped to shape a line of enthusiastic scientists in the process and he is one of the most kind and bright human beings I have ever met. On September 16, 1998 his friends and colleagues celebrated his work with a symposium in his honor at The Cloister/Mary Woodard Lasker Center, NIH Howard Hughes Medical Institute. The photographs shown were taken on that day. An impressive number of famous scientists (Figs. 1-8) participated including his major professor Roderick Barnes (Fig. 1), who came from Brazil for the event. Sadly, Prof. Barnes died 2000 from a massive stomach cancer. Hank showed me how “to do science”, both scientifically and socially. I am more than grateful to him in many ways and I also appreciate that he agreed to supervise this journal project.
