Howard Cash, Ph.D.

The mention of the food poisoning at an ASM annual meeting reminded me I had heard of that from my Ph.D. advisor who was going to school on the WWII GI bill in the early 50's. His account included that a good number of ASM members were on a side trip early the next day by train to a nearby fermentation company and had to contend with the illness and the limited number of restrooms on the train.
Being a money strapped grad student likewise saved me in 1980 when the ASM was in Miami Beach and many members of the informal Pseudomonas aeruginosa club went to a famous and pricey Stone Crab restaurant on South Beach. Several posters of great scientific interest went unattended the next day by the authors due to illness.
