Microbiology automation Remembering Lee VanBremen, PhD

I read with interest the reminiscences about former CAP executive vice president Lee VanBremen, PhD (February 2013, page 12). It was my good fortune to serve on the CAP Board of Governors while Dr. VanBremen was the EVP. It became immediately apparent that he was a gentleman, highly intelligent, quiet, and reserved. There were times when the Board meetings became boisterous, but Dr. VanBremen always kept his composure and calm demeanor.

When he spoke, we listened. His remarks were profound, never frivolous. His presence seemed to help elevate our debates to a somewhat higher plane.

The CAP was indeed fortunate to have had Dr. VanBremen’s 12 years of leadership.
