Notice

June 29, 2017

Dr. John Cairns is now 94 years old and is in a nursing home in Blacksburg Virginia.  He is doing well, but is no longer writing, traveling, or keeping up with his email.  If you would like to get a message to him, you can reach him through his daughter, Dr. Karen Cairns at karen.cairns@gmail.com.

I will continue to maintain his website so his writings are available, although there will not be much new content.  I will add pictures and other things as I get them or find them .  If you have any questions about the website, address them to cairnscham@gmail.com.  He loves his website and he is thrilled that people are still using it.  I update him weekly on what articles people are viewing.  He still loves his statistics!  Thanks for visiting!
