It is with great sadness that I report that Alan Baldridge died last night. Born and educated in England, Alan first arrived at HMS in 1966. He left in 1974 to take charge of the library at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science in Miami for five years before being enticed to return to Hopkins in 1978 where he continued to work until his retirement in 1993.
