To give pleasure to a single heart by a single act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.

— Mahatma Gandhi

Dr. Georgina Jolliffe with her husband Dr. Geoffrey Jolliffe on Geoffrey's 80th birthday (2008).

Dr. Georgina Jolliffe, who served as a technical editor for this text, passed away before she could enjoy the fruits of her labor. According to her husband Geoffrey, Georgina worked on this text for the "sheer love of it." Georgina was fondly remembered by many students, friends, and family members as a kind and gentle soul whose academic excellence and achievements were equally matched by her personal kindness and generosity.

Dr. Jolliffe worked with AHP for a period of almost four years reviewing every aspect of the introductory chapters and providing detailed commentary on the more than 140 microscopic characterizations contained in the Atlas portion of the text. It is perhaps fitting that her last work will have been in the development of the first English-language botanical medicine text to unite classic illustrations of microscopic structures with modern microphotographs of the same structures and tissues. This work will help keep alive one of her passions—botanical microscopy—at a time when worldwide it has been on a steady decline, and is once more on the rise. Georgina's academic excellence coupled with her practical experience was a great contribution to the text, and we are grateful that Microscopic Characterization of Botanical Medicines is a part of her legacy as she is now a part of the legacy of the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia.
