Sadly I never met Robert Fried, so I can't contribute anything personal
about him ... except to say that indirectly he had a major impact on my
astronomical development. Stephen J. O'Meara's excellent S&T article (June
99, pp94-98) "The Lord of Braeside" was (and still is) inspirational and a
major factor in kindling my interest in CCD photometry.
