Gentleman and Scholar--no better description fits my memory of my mentor, Dr. Peacock. He helped guide me through four tough years of graduate school at UGA and taught me the true nature of science. My condolences to the Peacock family for their loss of this fine man.

Rememberance of Professor Lee Peacock.
My main , and best, memory of Lelon J. Peacock is that of a very good teacher and mentor. From his and Marian's arrival at the University of Georgia, I studied and worked with Lee as an assistant and Ph.D. student for three years, becoming his first graduate in 1962. While there, my wife, Carol Ann Barrett and I often sat the Peacock children, Lynn, Jan, and Tim as Lee and Marian had an evening out.

In 1979 I called Lee to tell him of an invitation to present my research work on the development of the of the primate visual system at a symposium at St. Johns College, Cambridge, and our intended subsequent tour of Scotland. When asked what we could bring him from Scotland, he suggested that he favored a single malt scotch, Glenlivit, which I secured from the famous distillery and presented to Lee on our return. He was delighted.

Back in the ‘70s, Georgia played Stanford in the Bluebonnet Bowl in the Houston Astrodome. Lee and Marian, being diehard Georgia fans attended, and we had a chance to visit the evening before the game. At dinner, their spirits were high with expectations of a GA victory. And, the first half of the game was all Georgia's, something like GA 28, Stanford 7. However, hopes were dashed in the second half as Stanford won the game, like 34-28, and the Peacocks and all the other disappointed GA fans returned to Athens.

To Marian, the children and their families, we send our sympathy and warm thoughts!
