J. Desmond Clark
J.Desmond Clark and my grandfather,
the Spanish archaeologist Luis Pericot, were very good friends.
They visited each other many times and I met J.D.Clark in the 1960's
in Barcelona, when I was a child. He fascinated me and many years
after, when I became professor of Prehistory at the University of
Barcelona, I invited him many times to reunions and other academic
events. He and Betty were so charming that all my students were
also fascinated by them. The last time that I saw J.Desmond Clark,
in Rome, october '99, he still recognized me, I attended to his
lecture and we talked for a long time; last Christmas I received
a lovely card from him, that I thought that was his good bye: I
will keep it forever. Thank you forever for all your warm words
and your science.
