Lexicographer Laurence Urdang Dies at 81

One of my colleagues has died: Larry Urdang, 81. Paul Luna has written a bit more about him.

As you can read, he had a fruitful and respectable career. He also had a generosity of spirit that led him to provide such things at the Laurence Urdang-Dictionary Society of North American Award, which I was pleased to receive for my dictionary web site three years ago. It made the site and the book derived from it possible. Thank you, Larry.
