Short words of testimony on Barry Smith have just been published in the latest issue of TUGboat, 34:2,


in what seems to be a free section of the issue, available to everybody either TUG member or not.

The words are by Barbara Beeton and Doug Henderson


Anybody familiar with TUG knows who Barbara is. As for Doug Henderson, from the information I could gather, he seems to have been at the origin of the creation of Blue Sky Research with Barry Smith; there, he created the Metafont implementation <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/mac/textures/metafont> together with the original CM/PS fonts <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/mac/textures/fonts/Computer_Modern_PostScript>.
