Remembering John W. Bandler - A Maverick for All Seasons

The departure of John Bandler marks a profound loss, not only to his family but also to the microwave community, especially his former students, associates, colleagues, and friends. His legacy is a testament to his brilliance and distinction as a man of science, coupled with a unique personality endowed with multifaceted talents, a legacy that will be carried forth in the minds and hearts of all who knew him. In this memorial presentation I will revisit Professor Bandler's outstanding career achievements and contributions, followed by a retrospective of my personal interactions with him and of his impact on my professional and personal life. This retrospective will include photographs that capture some memorable moments.
