Malcolm touched the lives of thousands of young scientists. His former student David L. Clark, a laboratory fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratory, expressed that, ‘Above all, Malcolm will be remembered for his generosity and graciousness as a person.’ Clark added, ‘He had a wonderful sense of humor, and he cared deeply and genuinely about everyone around him. He was happiest when he could celebrate the successes of his family and his students.’ ”—Susan Olesik, colleague at Ohio State University
