Diana Behler pays tribute to Charles Barrack as he concludes a long and distinguished career:
Charles Barrack has been my colleague for many years, and this has been my good fortune. My days often began with his head poking into my office, a big smile on his face and a cheerful, uplifting greeting. An expert linguist, he has maintained an interest in philosophy and literature, publishing some essays in these fields too. Since retiring a few years ago, I realized how much I missed his company across the hall from my office. Always upbeat and welcoming, Charles is the epitome of a fine colleague--interesting and curious, positive and enthusiastic, loyal and helpful. Thanks for the wonderful years of friendship and camaraderie, Charles!
Have a great time during the years to come!
