Dear SHAKSPER colleagues,

It is my sad duty to report to you the death last night in Cleveland of
Robert Ornstein, former President of the Shakespeare Association of
America, and author of many books and articles on Shakespeare and other
Renaissance dramatists, including A Kingdom for a Stage, The Moral
Vision of Jacobean Tragedy, and Shakespeare's Comedies. Bob had been
retired since 1988, pursuing private pleasures, sailing in the summer,
learning to draw and occasionally visiting his former colleagues. I last
saw him at a reading given by another colleague last semester. He was in
good health, affable and enthusiastic about his current life. His death
was sudden and, as far as I know, unexpected.

Tom Bishop
