What can one say about Barbara Salken? To recite her “tangible” accomplishments as a teacher, scholar, and colleague is almost certainly to miss the point and to understate her contributions. Any attempt to convey a real sense of her as a person through words on a page is doomed to failure. This is a person of whom one can truly say, “You had to be there.”
