We are deeply saddened by the death of a pioneering palynologist, Professor E.M. van Zinderen Bakker, who was President of the South African Archaeological Society from 1977-1979. He died in Somerset West on 19 March 2002, within a month of his 95th birthday. After suffering two strokes in five years, he bore the progressive deterioration of his health with great courage. Eduard Meine van Zinderen Bakker was born in Friesland, Netherlands, on 15 April 1907.
