Sad news: Professor Hatsujiro Hashimoto passed away

Professor Hatsujiro Hashimoto passed away on April 15th, 2017.
He served on the IFSM Executive Board as the President from 1982 thru  
1986 and the chair person of the 11th International Congress on Electron  
Microscopy (ICEM) in Kyoto, Japan, 1986.

His interests were not only the development of microscopy in materials
