An authority in the design and use of sprinkler systems, Booher helped speed the adoption of this method of irrigation. He was also a leader in the newer system of drip irrigation for low use of water in dealing with problems of soil salinity. Early recognizing the importance of water conservation, he pioneered in research and extension programs promoting techniques of efficient water use. Larry Booher's deep devotion to his work and to his professional responsibilities was exceeded only by his loyalty to his colleagues and family.
His life measured up to the ideal of rock steadiness and dependability that others can only admire and strive to emulate.

Root canal therapy at the time was a relatively new field, and our knowledge of bacteriology concerning root canal treatment was fairly limited prior to World War II. Nevertheless, with much insight, Dr. Breese taught and insisted on proper cleansing and shaping of the root canal, the complete debridement of all pulpal debris, the control of asepsis through the use of a rubber dam, as well as the sterilization of the root canal before its filling with a solid permanent material.
These steps in the treatment of root canals proved to be correct and successful and are in universal practice today. A true pioneer in endodontics, he stressed the biological approach in endodontic therapy and emphasized the control of all types of micro-organisms found in pulpal infection. For many years his efforts were directed toward developing more effective methods and agents for treatment and sterilization of root canals.

He was one of the first to bring to the attention of the profession the solution of 9-Aminoacridine, a widely used chemical for pulp sterilization. His methodology and criteria for clinical evaluation of this antibacterial were of the highest scientific standard, as Dr. Breese was a thorough and serious clinical investigator and would not draw premature conclusions from experimental data. Following World War II, endodontic book publications consisted of only two textbooks. Therefore the reference and source of teaching material was very limited.
Breese developed a detailed teaching syllabus on endodontics which he continually revised and updated as new developments continued to come forward. From to Dr.

Breese developed five outstanding classic teaching syllabi which when put together would fill two volumes. Breese's excellence in clinical dentistry was not limited to endodontics alone.

His research activities in every field of involvement gave him a great source of satisfaction. During this phase of teaching, he developed a combination lucite and stainless scaler handle and his evening and weekend time was used in the development of the ideal toothbrush; its basic design is now manufactured by a national organization which distributes the toothbrush worldwide.

We are all grateful and proud for having worked with him and shared his warm personality and his strong and enduring friendship. Nguyen Carl Regli John Sapone. He was educated at Harvard, receiving the A. After receiving the Ph. His training had been the rigorous program of such men as Kittredge, Lowes, and Robinson; and Arthur's interest in the literature of the Middle Ages led him naturally to a deep and intimate knowledge of the languages in which they were written, though his publications dealt entirely with literary problems.
But it was a joy to hear him lecture or recite a class on his favorite subjects, for at every turn of the talk something new, wholly unexpected, cropped up, and Arthur could enlighten what to some might seem a dull and dreary topic.

For him the people in Beowulf , for example, were not to be explained as mere type-characters, they were men and women, with human problems, constrained by the society in which they lived and by the heroic code that governed it. Nor were the languages mere exercises in grammar; language became under his touch a living organism, constantly changing, constantly growing. No student who worked with him ever viewed the study of language as settling the business of Greek particles. Much of his publication centered on Northern story: He also wrote three books: The first two works are rather popular than scholarly in their appeal, but scholarly rather than popular in their preparation, for Arthur never yielded to the temptation to make a book popular by disregard of the facts.
In this connection it may be noted that in his earlier years he published short stories in popular magazines, dealing with mediaeval, usually Northern, subjects, the matter often drawn from his knowledge of the times. The Art of Beowulf is one of the books that any student of the poem must read. It began, in its original form, with a study of some of the rhetorical techniques of Old Norse and Old English poetry; but as it progressed, Arthur realized that he had an important new way of looking at the poem, and he proceeded to develop this new vision.
His extraordinary knowledge of a feeling for Norse Skaldic poetry was central to his treatment of the art of Beowulf. Arthur's interest in Scandinavian studies led to the realization of a many years' old dream. For a considerable time there had been discussions among Scandinavians in the Bay Area concerning the possibility of initiating instruction at Berkeley.

In the department was made permanent, and he remained as its chairman until For his services to Scandinavian culture, he received the Royal Order of Vasa, First Class, from the government of Sweden; and the citation read at the conferring on him of the LL.
Rigorously conservative in scholarship, he was resolutely liberal in politics. During the oath controversy, Arthur was an active leader in the struggle against the imposition of that unspeakable requirement. His New England conscience forbade compromise with evil; it was with a great wrench of spirit that he decided to sign, stay, and fight. Though the decision was painful, it was good for the University, for the requirement was withdrawn, and Arthur continued to serve the University until his retirement in Arthur's favorite nonacademic association was the Adventure Camp Fire Club, a group of men who met at irregular intervals, either indoors or out, for talk.

A controversial figure in applied linguistics, his unswerving intellectual integrity and unfailing determination to bring linguistic theory into an effective relationship with sound teaching principles and techniques set him apart from the main current of both linguistic research and Spanish language pedagogy, and ultimately he made lasting contributions to the former and revolutionized the latter.
Born in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, 4 October , he chose an academic career only after several years of rather more earthy occupations, including being a working cowhand.
He early developed the attitude that if a problem can be defined, it can be solved. In he graduated from the University of Wisconsin with both B. Following teaching at Iowa and at Washington universities the latter in Saint Louis , he was called in to fill a position in language and in methodology and teacher training at UCLA, remaining here to bring distinction to this campus as an outstanding center in Spanish applied linguistics.
