I never had the privilege of studying under Dr. Barold but he was a major influence to my career. I read many of his articles during my junior years at Boston University. I attended his lectures at the annual NASPE meetings and learned his meticulous attention to millisecond interval in understanding the various algorithms being introduced to the manufacturers. As my career developed, I was privileged to serve as a faculty member with Dr. Barold and I never failed to learn from him. He also encouraged my writing and manuscript preparation and provided invaluable guidance. Thank you Serge.
