Thank you so much for publishing a short obituary of my partner, Professor Richard A. Ellis, in your journal (Winter 2016). He cared deeply about Brown University and bequeathed a significant part of his estate to his Brown scholarship. I was very happy to see his colleagues at the celebration of his life on August 14, 2016, and I also received notes and telephone calls from his students.
Thank you and my best wishes to all of you.
