I guess no one here reads Prospectus? I haven't in a very long time, so I don't know this fellow. I assume he went (relatively) young.

He did some writing at BP and elsewhere, but was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy. Most BP articles would end with "Thanks to Rob McQuown for research assistance."

I changed the main link in this thread to a tribute that BP has since posted.
