In Memoríam

It is only fitting that this hook on Populations and Genetics: Legal and Socio-Ethical Perspectives he dedicated to our dear friend and colleague Dorothy Wertz who died suddenly on April 29th while attending the annual meeting of the Ethics Committee of the Human Genome Organization. She was a vital and active contributor to its Statements.

Dorothy Wertz participated in all three international DNA sampling conferences. Her paper on “Genetic Discrimination in an International Context” illustrates both her commitment to basing analyses of social issues on facts (not anecdotes or extrapolations) and to providing the views of different cultures. Indeed, Dorothy was a true internationalist with much vision and no fear. She inspired awe in all of us.

Open to changing her mind (unless the facts proved otherwise), without pretention, and an incorrigible editor, her honesty often cost her professionally. No conference will be the same without Dorothy at the microphone (- beware of her questions!). A lover of eccentric jewellery and hats, of dogs, good food and the company of her friends around the world, she was larger than life. Her international family will miss her.
