In Remembrance of Roy A. Rosenzweig
On October 12th AHA Today recognized the life and work of Roy Rosenzweig, who passed away on the evening of October 11th. The news of this loss has spread across the Internet, where numerous blog posts and articles went up soon after Rosenzweig’s death. Here are links to a few:

  • Digital Historian Roy A. Rosenzweig
    The Washington Post’s Adam Bernstein details Rosenzweig’s contributions to the field of history, especially his impact on digital history.
  • In Memory of Roy Rosenzweig (1950-2007)
    HNN has created a tribute page to Rosenzweig, compiling reminiscences from colleagues, obituaries from newspapers, and career highlights from a variety of sources.
