Daniel Rahn Memorial Research Grant


1946-2002 - Daniel J. Rahn


Excerpts from "A Tribute to Dan Rahn", IABPA News, September, 2002 by Insp. Bruce MacLean (RCMP):


"At the time of his death, Dan was the president of the International Association of Bloodstain Pattern Analysts. Dan put a tremendous amount of time and energy into this organization."

"Dan was without a doubt one of the finest forensic identification technician and bloodstain pattern analysts I have ever met.  As you all know, he was extremely intelligent and possessed a gifted analytical mind."

"Dan was a free thinker and born rebel. Dan was thinking 'outside of the box' long before there was a box and it became fashionable to do so. Dan was not adverse to having a contrary opinion. He was always a man ahead of his time."

 


As a memorial to Dan, the IABPA has established a research grant intended to advance the science of bloodstain pattern analysis.

One such grant (
currently up to $3000 USD) is available each year.
