This brief note is written to laud the memory of Dr. Thomas N. James, MD, MACP (Figure 1), author and member of the editorial board of The American Journal of Cardiology and other outstanding international journals.1 Dr. James, an internationally renowned cardiologist and pathologist, scientific investigator, and professor, whose focus was on cardiovascular pathology, especially of the cardiac conduction system, died September 11, 2010, at the age of 84 years. Dr. James remains with us, as his research on the conduction system, the “heart of the heart,” is beating vividly and is a stimulus for the growing pursuit of cardiologic, anatomic-pathologic, and genetic research into the sudden death of human beings in all age groups.
