Sad News

I’ve just returned from vacation and learned about the death of Graham Stanton. I’m deeply sad. I considered Graham a friend. I was his teaching assistant when he traveled to Pasadena to teach at Fuller one (or two?) summer(s). He also agreed to meet with me and monitor my progress when I took a study leave and lived in Cambridge for a couple of months in the Spring of 2002. Gail and I once had a delightful dinner with Graham and his wife, where they told a very amusing story about Graham playing tuba with Donald Hagner at a dinner in Pasadena at the Hagners’ home (Donald Hagner is a very accomplished tuba player. Apparently Graham was not.)

Graham will be missed.
