memorial service for Joe Levine

We're on our way to Syracuse today so that we can attend my Dad's memorial service at Syracuse University's Hendrick's Chapel on Saturday afternoon at 3. The speakers include the following good friends:

♦ Dean Cathryn R. Newton, College of Arts and Sciences, Syracuse
♦ Lucy Freeman Sandler, Helen Gould Sheppard Professor of Art History, NYU
♦ Elisabeth Lasch-Quinn, Professor of History, Syracuse
♦ Ralph Ketcham, Professor of History Emeritus, Syracuse
♦ Gordon J. Schochet, Professor of Political Science, Rutgers
♦ Craige B. Champion, Chair, Department of History, Syracuse
♦ J. Paul Hunter, Barbara E. and Richard J. Franke Professor of English Emeritus, University of Chicago
♦ Herbert Finkelstein, Ossining, NY
♦ Jean Stinchcombe, Syracuse, NY

The speakers were invited because of personal friendships, but the range of their disciplines is meaningful. Dad's work in intellectual and cultural history was directly relevant to, and widely read in, the fields of English, art history, and political theory.
