We are deeplly saddened by the death of our colleague in Extension and Experiment Communications, Mark Anderson-Wilk, who passed away on January 26. In his four years at OSU, Mark advanced Extension publishing, increased access through partnership with OSU Library's ScholarsArchive, and raised the academic standard of OSU Extension publications to the highest level in the nation. Not only a fine scholar, Mark was also an artist, a father of two young daughters, husband, and a friend.
