Dear all,

I am very sad to report that Ray Morrison has recently died.  I'm sure 
most of you have read his fine book /A Smile in His Mind's Eye/, 
published in 2006 by the University of Toronto Press.  He last presented 
a paper at the OMG XIV conference in Victoria, BC, in 2006.

I remember very fondly my meetings and lunches with Ray in Vancouver 
after his retirement from Carleton University, Ottawa.  He was a gentle 
man, and his scholarly work has been cited by at least a few generations 
of scholars now.

I don't have information on memorial services, but I will pass these 
along once I know more.

Best regards,
