Subject: RIP: Harold Jenkins
Shakespeareans around the world will mourn the passing of Professor
Harold Jenkins, on Tuesday, 4 January, in Ashtead, Surrey, England.
Professor Jenkins celebrated his 90th birthday last July but had
suffered a number of setbacks in recent months. Those many people whose
lives he touched over the years will regret never being able to see him
again and never again receiving one of his always-welcome letters. But
they will also rejoice that he has now joined his beloved Gladys again
after a fifteen-year separation and that he rests in peace. They will
also rejoice to reflect on the extraordinary intellectual contribution
Professor Jenkins made in so many areas of Shakespearean scholarship.
