The International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) is creating a memorial booklet and tribute for Jim Nuckolls, which will be presented at Lightfair 99 in San Francisco next May. "Typically in our field the contribution one makes is presented in pictures of projects," says Diana Mesh, Zumtobel Staff Lighting director of product management, who is spearheading the tribute. "But since Jim's contribution was in his prolific teaching, speaking, and influencing of others to grow the lighting design profession, we thought a booklet containing thoughts and thanks from those he touched would be fitting."

All those interested in sharing their reminiscences can contact Mesh at Zumtobel, located at 300 Route 9W, P.O. Box 1020, Highland, NY 12528-0020; phone: 914/691-6262, fax: 914/691-6289, e-mail:
