Abstract: From the start of the `Irfán Colloquium and its publications, Mr. Hushmand Fatheazam was a constant encourager, inspirer and patron of the services rendered through this project. We greatly benefited from his guidance and collaboration. Whenever it was feasible for him, Mr. Fatheazam and his dear wife Shafigheh Fatheazam were participating at the `Irfán Colloquium sessions. Mr. Fatheazam’s presentations immensely enriched our programs and we greatly enjoyed their presence. Our publications contain the texts of some of his presentations. [Iraj Ayman, from p. 405-406]
