These two sessions remember the work of Frank M. 'Mike' Clover, who passed away in July, 2019. Beginning in the 1960s, Mike's work was instrumental in the development of the study of Late Antiquity in general and of the Vandal kingdom of North Africa in particular. In addition, Mike was an indefatigable teacher and consultant who touched the lives of multitudes of students and scholars. He never was too busy to offer a piece of trenchant bibliography. These several papers, all of them presented by individuals who knew Mike personally, pay tribute to his legacy.
