Thomas Eastman was lost at sea while fishing off Cape Cod. Dave Lockard reports that Tom had completed requirements for his doctorate at Maryland and was to have received the degree in December. Tom was one of our promising young NARST members. Our sympathy goes out to Mrs. Eastman and other members of Tom's family. NARST members may want to express their sympathy to Tom's wife, Mrs. Beverly Eastman, 58 Hawthorn Avenue, Needham, Mass. 02192. An Eastman Memorial fund has been established and contributions may be sent to Mr. John Griffin, assistant principal, Needham High School, 609 Webster Street, Needham, Mass. 02194.
