Dear Gene Mappers

It is with deepest regret and sorrow that I inform you of this terrible news. Our dear friend, Ann Bowling, suffered a fatal cerebral hemorrhage. Ann suddenly collapsed in her office with no previous sign of illness. She was immediately taken to the hospital but there was nothing that could be done. She died the following day -- Friday December 8, 2000.

She is survived by her husband Michael and daughter Lydia. Condolences may be sent to them at:

USA In lieu of flowers or other gifts the family has asked that people contribute to the The Ann T. Bowling Scholarship for Equine Genetics -- to be awarded to a DVM student or post-graduate student who is interested in pursuing a career in equine genetics.

A memorial is being planned with UC Davis which in all likelihood will be after the new year.

Dr. Ann Bowling was the Executive Associate Director of the Veterinary Genetics Laboratory and had been on the faculty of the School of Veterinary Medicine since 1973. She was considered to be one of the world's foremost horse geneticists. Her research on molecular genetics all tied in with her richly varied interests in parentage identification, coat color, genetic disease, gene mapping and cytogenetics. THE GENETICS OF THE HORSE (2000) Edited by Ann Bowling and Anatoly Ruvinsky has been recently published by CAB International (Wallingford, UK).
