Tatskauki Nakato (1942-2016)

Tatsuaki Nakato - talented hydraulician, devoted colleague and friend, and vital connection between
hydraulics in the USA and Japan, passed away on September 3, 2016. His life personifies a significant
strand in the development of hydraulic engineering.

The uniqueness of the connection he forged between Japan and the USA is exemplified by the banquet
speech he gave during the 1993 Tokyo Congress of the International Association of Hydraulic Research
(IAHR).
