Below is a message from Robert McMaster.

****

I think Michael Keany’s observations are spot-on.  Many thanks for making
them, Michael.  You write eloquently for many of us, I think.



Obviously this is very sad news.  A dark day in dark times.  John was a
lovely person, full of fun, as well as a fine scholar.  I have many happy
memories of him (and Fred Lee – a fine double act) on visits to UMKC and US
conferences.  I’ll miss his wisdom and sense of fun.



Take care.



All the best,

Robert

> Born in Red Hill, PA, John earned an A.B. from Muhlenberg College in 1965,
