Leland F. “Lee” Powers passed away on August 17, 2016. Lee was managing editor for The Journal of Infectious Diseases for over a decade after a previous long term at the journal Hospital Practice. Lee had a lasting impact on the journal and on those who knew him. “No one I know personified the term ‘gentleman’ more than Lee,” said JID Editor-in-Chief Martin S. Hirsch, MD, FIDSA. “He was a true professional at his work and a delightful human being.”
Lee is survived by his wife, Carol; brother-in-law Charles Sexton and nephews Adam and Jared; sister-in-law and brother-in-law Ellen and Robert Meeropol; Carol's sons Alex, Michael and James and their families.
