Robert Wernli and Harumi Sugimatsu, BEACON Editors
Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that one of our most active members, Claude Brancart, passed away last December. Claude was a former AdCom member, our representative on the OTC Board, OES Secretary, Chairman of OCEANS ’96 MTS/IEEE and was OES President in 1997-1998. We will provide an article in the December Beacon that addresses his career and the significant impact he had on the OES. If you would like to add a personal comment, please send to your Beacon editors before the 14 November deadline.
