    I was saddened to hear of Calvin’s death. I am not sure how to reach you, so I hope you will see this comment. I liked and respected Calvin and treasure the days I worked with him. He was at USCA when I first came and was welcoming and helpful to me. Those were the days when we were all in one building and knew all the other faculty and staff, so you got to know the people you could count on. Calvin was one of those. I also worked with him on a NEH grant and had him come to the UU Augusta Church to speak several times. He was always a popular speaker and others were impressed with the depth of his knowledge and his keen insight. I treasure the memories of my work with him. He was kind, had a sharp mind and a good heart.
