Subject:        Death of SHAKSPERean John F. Sullivan
 
I learned yesterday from Chris Sullivan of the death of his father,
SHAKSPERean John F. Sullivan, Professor Emeritus of the University
of Windsor.  Dr. Sullivan participated in many discussions on SHAKSPER,
and he will be missed.
 
Below is Chris's letter:
 
===============================================================================
Hello.
 
This is to announce that my father, who was a subscriber to the SHAKSPER
mailing list, has passed away.  He was Dr. John F. Sullivan, Professor
Emeritus of the University of Windsor, Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
 
During his last years, he thoroughly enjoyed reading and sometimes replying
to the list, in spite of being unwell and unable to get about.
 
In the last six months, though unable to read, he had many messages read
to him.  He especially enjoyed the controversy over Shakespeare and politics,
because that was his special field.
 
He died on October 22, 1993.  He was a Shakespeare teacher and scholar, and
will be missed by his family, former colleagues, and former students.
 
He left unfinished an edition of Doleman's _A_Conference_About_the_Next_
Succession_to_the_Crowne_, thought to be written by Robert Persons, S.J.
 
I want to thank Hardy M. Cook and Ken Steele for making his association
with this list possible, to thank the SHAKSPER list for making his last
days happier ones, and to bid you all goodbye on his behalf.
 
Chris Sullivan
