Hear, hear. John was a kind and generous soul. His great work, 
"Shakespeare and the Classical Tradition" was his response to T. W. 
Baldwin's "William Shakespere's Small Latine & Lesse Greek," about which 
John said, "without it I could not have an intellectual life." These 
men's lives and work represent the scholarly tradition in its closest, 
finest sense.

I am dismayed at the news of John Velz's death. Yet I would like to 
stress at this moment how happy I am to have known him. I will never 
forget the many good (challenging, rewarding and entertaining) 
conversations we had and I will always think with gratitude of his 
friendship and intellectual support. He was a man of enormous learning 
which he was also ready to share at all times. I owe him a lot -- as, I 
am certain, do many others among us. I would like his tremendous 
generosity to be remembered above all.
