MICHAEL R. MARTIN

Arriving from the Nebraska Heartland, Mike brought with him all the open friendliness of the West. Alert, involved, inherently honest, sometimes pensive, and capable of enormous indignation, Mike commanded respect and admiration. Mike's capacity to be intensely alive, his natural interest, and his lasting dedication assume him of a life both relevant and rewarding.
