In the past few days more than three hundred visitors to this blog have come seeking information about Jon Lucks, an alumnus of this department whose recent death has left those who knew him in shock and in mourning. I wish I could provide a personal memory, but it was never my privilege to have Jon in one of my courses. I do know from Professors Holly Dugan and Mariah Frawley, though, what a joy he was to have in class.
If any of our readers would like to offer their own thoughts about Jon, I would be happy to publish them here on this blog. Please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
