KURT STRAUSS, who has been the sole instructor of the highly successful ASTM Technical and Professional Training Course on Aviation Fuels for 14 years, will retire from teaching the course as of his last class, to be held this month at ASTM Headquarters. Strauss has taught the course over 70 times, traveling around the world, from the United States to Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Over those 14 years Strauss encountered some touchy political situations, from the Gulf War to riots in Venezuela, but taught the courses in any event. The Society, and the Technical and Professional Training department in particular, is grateful for Strauss’ commitment to the course and will miss his enthusiastic participation in the program. The class will continue to be taught around the world by a new instructor.
