Obituary: Dr. William (Mickey) Haynes (1943–2016)
Dr. William (Mickey) Haynes, winner of the 2014 Lifetime Achievements Award of the European Conference on Thermophysical Properties, passed away in his home on 25 February 2016 after a year-long struggle with esophageal cancer. Mickey was a prominent leader in the global thermophysics community who had retired from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Boulder, CO USA in 2003, but who remained active in the field until shortly before his death.
The Lifetime Achievements Award, noted in an editorial in this Journal , was just one of a number of honors bestowed upon Dr. Haynes. Mickey was internationally recognized for his technical achievements, leadership in research activities, and service to the thermophysics community. He was also a friend, collaborator, and mentor to colleagues world-wide; the contributors to this note were among those who held Dr. Haynes’ honor, integrity, and contributions in very high regard.
