ained active on the Board of ABC, attending all on-site and teleconference meetings, asking questions about budget issues, organization, administration, policy decisions, etc. All of us on the ABC Board were – and still are – grateful for his continued association with ABC. We were amazed with his interest in and knowledge details of the organization, and his profound commitment to the success of ABC's unique nonprofit educational mission to spread the scientific basis supporting the responsible use of herbs, medicinal plants, and phytomedicines," said Blumenthal.
One of Farnsworth and Fong's former students is Daniel Fabricant, Ph.D., now Director of the Division of Dietary Supplement Programs at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, who said that he chose UIC because of Dr. Farnsworth and his legacy there. "He's a straight shooter, he doesn't put on airs, and he's very disarming. He's easy to gravitate to because of these unique qualities," said Dr. Fabricant. "He's been my mentor, a hero, and a friend."
"He has launched a thousand careers, including my own," said Gail Mahady, Ph.D., a clinical pharmacognosist who also met Dr. Farnsworth during graduate school, who headed the project at UIC to produce monographs on herbal medicines for the WHO. "For that I will be eternally grateful."
Norman Farnsworth is survived by his devoted wife Priscilla Marston Farnsworth, his brother, Bruce, and sister-in-law, Donna, of Massachusetts, a niece and nephew, and hundreds of graduate students, Ph.D.s, post-doctoral fellows, and close colleagues who will always cherish his beloved memory.
A wake and viewing will be held at the Adams Winterfield & Sullivan Funeral Home, 4343 Main St., Downers Grove, IL on Tuesday, September 13 from 3-9 p.m. Memorial service for Professor Farnsworth will be held Wednesday, September 14 at 10 a.m. (9:30 a.m. viewing) at the North Shore Baptist Church, 5244 N. Lakewood Ave., Chicago, IL with fun
