To ARSC Executive Committee, ARSCList and 78-L members:
I just received a phone call from Seth Winner that Don Hodgman, long-time
ARSC member, past Finance Committee Chair, and my roommate for ARSC Board
Meetings for more years than I can count, died on Thursday in Chicago while
visiting his daughter, before his annual move to the west coast for the
Don had fallen earlier this year and was using a cane at the ARSC
Conference in May. He apparently had another fall in Chicago. Seth did not have
more info and was unable to reach Don's daughter today, so I have no more info.
A google search of death notices brought up nothing.
I wanted to alert all Don's friends. It's probably too late to have a
notice in the Fall ARSC Newsletter but I wanted to get this information out.
Don was a true gentleman and a great conversationalist (once you got him
started). He sold off much of his collection over the last few years so it
will be to those who got it to carry on Don's love of classical music.
