Dear Leland:

	Thank you for the kind remarks. For years I know that I should
record some of the events that have happened in my life and two years
ago I had an opportunity to write articles for my local newspaper.  I
competed in a writing contest and was one of 17 Opinion Shapers (several
hundred usually apply).  It gives me opportunities to write three
articles a year and I won again this year so I have now written 4
articles and will soon submit my 5th. So slowly I am at least taking the
time to record my stories. Unfortunately with a strict limit of 600
words I often have to leave out important detail.

Dear Albert( and Dr. Croat),

Aloha and mahalo for sharing this video of Dr. Croat's lecture for those
of us stuck at home.

It proves that the IAS has a living treasure among us in the form of Dr.
Croat.  His life and work needs to be published as a book... I believe
it should be a biography versus an autobiography so he can continue to
work on Araceae undistracted.  Wow.  I was impressed before I saw the
video...but now I am convinced that his life should be documented like
other legends in print...Dr. Richard Evan Schultes,Dr. E.O.
Wilson,...Bates, Wallace, and Spruce are a few that come to mind.  We
need to have the unabridged and illustrated Croat biography...maps and
photos and botanical illustrations.  It needs to have 500 pages of text
and full color plates.  What a story,

Thank you both for this opportunity to glimpse the life and times of Dr.
Tom Croat...I feel I know him a little better...but I also know that is
like seeing the entire extent of an iceberg.
