Remembering Clyde Hertzman

Dr. Clyde Hertzman, founding director of the Human Early Learning Partnership, passed away suddenly in February 2013. On March 17th, 2013 Clyde’s family, friends and colleagues gathered together for an afternoon of song and speaches at Clyde’s celebration of life held at UBC’s Chan Centre.

In the days, weeks and months that followed Clyde’s death the Human Early Learning Partnership received an overwhelming number of condolences and tributes from Clyde’s friends, colleagues, community supporters, academic institutions and news media. In response, we complied these rememberances into a book of remembrances honouring his life and work. We welcome any further contributions below. For those wishing to make a financial contribution in Clyde’s memory a Legacy Fund has also been established in his honour.
