ALS Researcher Dies of ALS

Dr. Richard K. Olney, a leading physician and pioneer in clinical research on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, died of the disease on Jan. 27, 2012 at his home in Corte Madera, Calif. He was 64.

This is an important obit of a researcher/patient with ALS. It's quite ironic and one would hope that some of his writings on the subject are available.
