Fond Memory of Gene - Nadine Winocur, Psy.D.
to Dr. Eugene Mallove from the Science Community
LOS ANGELES, CALIF.
May 17, 2004 It is with great sadness that we
report the passing of Gene Mallove, who was killed on
Friday, May 14, possibly in relation to a property dispute.
We have confirmed this information with the Norwich, CT
police department. A homicide investigation is underway.
Gene is survived by his wife
Joanne, his son, Ethan, and his daughter, Kim.
We believe that Gene
Mallove will one day be recognized as one of the
greatest science journalists of his time. He was
an authoritative historian and innovative investigator
within the new energy field. Through his 1991
book, "Fire from Ice: Searching for the Truth behind
the Cold Fusion Furor," Gene was the first to
courageously and boldly express the reality of cold
fusion, long before any other science journalist dared to
ask questions that challenged the prevailing view.
In 1996, he reached an even broader audience with his
highly educational video, "Cold Fusion: Fire From
15 years, he worked tirelessly and relentlessly, at great personal sacrifice,
to foster and oversee the development of cold fusion and
other new energy experimentation at his New Energy
Research Laboratory. He published Infinite Energy:
The Magazine of New Energy Technology, which provided a
"torch" of information that drew and
enlightened many to the existence and legitimacy of cold
fusion and other emerging new energy technologies. Most
recently, he established the New Energy Foundation, a
non-profit corporation, which provides grants to
researchers and developers in the field of new energy.
Gene will be
remembered for the immense support and encouragement he
provided to cold fusion researchers around the world,
whose progress and achievements he recognized,
chronicled and publicized through a wide variety of
media. His tremendous efforts have shown
increasing success over the past few years and continue
to bear fruit, as is evidenced by the growing media
attention in support of cold fusion.
Gene's death comes as a
great shock to everyone. His loss will be felt for a
long time. At the same time, Gene's generosity
toward the scientific community, his commitment
to the integrity of Science, and his dedication to
creating a better world, will be forever appreciated and
