August 30, 2016

Harry KatzPest Management Professional (PMP) Hall of Famer Harry Katz died Sunday, Aug. 28, at the age of 101.

As PMP Chalk Talk columnist (and fellow Hall of Famer) Dr. Austin Frishman said of Katz at the time of his induction in 2000, “Harry’s dedication and willingness to share his knowledge with others is legendary. Anyone who has come in contact with Harry comes away a better PMP… his impact is everlasting. He recognized the need of professionalism as an industry long before it was fashionable. In addition, his charity work is a story in itself.”
