This volume honors the following dedicated clinicians and researchers who taught me
about the biology and treatment of germ cell tumors: A. Munro Neville, MD, PhD; Sir
Michael Peckham, MD; Eadie Heyderman, MD; Ann Barrett, MD; Timothy McElwain,
MD (deceased); B. J. Kennedy, MD; Elwin E. Fraley, MD; and Paul Lange, MD. It also
reflects my continuing affection and respect for my patients, who have battled this disease
and who have helped to overcome it for future generations.
