Subject:     Richard Helgerson, 1940-2008

Dear Shakespeareans,

It saddens me greatly to announce that Professor Richard Helgerson of UC 
Santa Barbara died on Saturday, after a long battle with cancer. In 
addition to being an award-winning, ground-breaking, and inspiring 
scholar, he was also a wonderful teacher and mentor. The field of 
Renaissance literature has lost a great man.

A memorial service will be held on May 23rd at UC Santa Barbara. His 
colleagues at UCSB have posted a full obituary as well as reflections on 
his scholarly and teaching career at http://emc.english.ucsb.edu

Best,
Shannon Miller
Department of English
Temple University
