In a tragically shortened career Margaret C. (Peggy) Etter (1943-1992) not only made pioneering scientific contributions to the budding field of organic solid state chemistry. She also was a devoted and motivating mentor, resolute colleague, and inspiriting advocate to many practitioners in the developing discipline. The breadth of current activity in the field is very much a tribute to her scientific legacy. Little has been written about Peggy Etter the person. I was fortunate to be a colleague and collaborator for nearly 15 years during which time I got to know her as both remarkable scientist and a very special individual. This personal contribution, introducing the virtual memorial issue, tries to portray some of the highlights of that relationship.
