      Yes - it is our unfortunate loss of a true treasure - Bob passed on in
      September 2006.

      Much of his card index was donated and has been digitized and can be
      found here:
      http://digicoll.manoa.hawaii.edu/krauss/index.php?c=1

      there may be more DB information to be gleaned from this priceless
      research tool.
