When my fellowship director left academics, I inherited her office, a National Institutes of Health subcontract, a few too many committee seats, and a small library of books and journal articles. Of the library, only a few works remain. Of these, only one, Morgan's fourth edition of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Recognition and Management of Pesticide Poisonings, became a trusted friend and advisor, often consulted for help with the management of insecticide, herbicide, and other pesticide exposures.
