The faculty, staff, and teachers of Stanford University's Human Biology Middle Grades Life Science Curriculum Project dedicate the publication of the HumBio Curriculum in memory of our colleagues and friends, Mrs. Donna Harrison and Dr. Mary Budd Rowe. Donna was the lead science teacher at Dozier Middle School, the project test site school in Newport News, Virginia. She was an outstanding teacher, a community leader, a devoted wife and mother, and a wonderful human being. Her involvement in the HumBio Project enriched the curriculum materials and brought great joy to our lives. Although her life ended suddenly and tragically, the inspiration she gave to all who knew her will live on in what we do to improve the education of children and youth. Mary Budd Rowe was our most distinguished science education colleague and our dear friend. She guided the early organizational stages of the project as a group of university scientists attempted to address issues of middle level science education. Her unbridled enthusiasm for the education of children always reminded us of the important purpose of our work. Mary continued her unwavering support of the HumBio curriculum until her passing in June of 1996.
