Sorry to hear. I thought that I would talk with him again. So it goes.

Do you know where his Durrell collection will go? I remember talking with him about items that he had.

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,
