Arch Virol 146/5 (2001) Virology Division News In Memoriam Pekka Eljas Halonen (1927–2001) ekka Halonen passed away on 19 February 2001, after a long illness that he bore with the same kind of courage that characterized his whole life. He used to say that Finns are tougher than Vikings; at least in his case it is true. It is as if Sibelius wrote “Finlandia” as the ultimate expres- sion of the Finnish spirit with Pekka in mind. The effect this music has on the listener in the setting of the Finnish landscape reminds us of Pekka’s indom- itable spirit. But Pekka was not only tough and deter- mined, he was warm, generous and caring as a friend and colleague to so many of the world’s virologists. Indeed, since the timeline of Pekka’s professional life paralleled the rise of international virology, he was a personal force in the lives of many of the founders of the independent discipline of virology, especially medical virology. He was there at the beginning, as a member of the host committee of the First International Congress for Virology, held in Helsinki in 1968, and he played many important roles in the international community of virologists
