Sad News: The Death of Frank Moore Cross

Posted in obituary by Jim on October 17, 2012

Via Robert Deutsch the sad news that Frank Cross died last night (October 16).  Cross was 92.  A giant has fallen.  May he rest in peace.

UPDATE: Also just in this remark from Peter Machinist of Harvard:

Dear Colleagues,

I have some very sad news to report, which I just learned: Frank Moore Cross passed away last night. He had taken seriously ill in the last several weeks, and went to a hospice in Rochester, NY, near where he had been living in a retirement community. The hospice was very close to the home of one of his daughters, Ellen Gindele and her family. He was 91, and had certainly lived a long, and highly accomplished life, and was the backbone of our programs at Harvard.

May his memory be for a blessing!



Deutsch and Cross

    Truly a giant in his field. I had the pleasure, many years ago of approaching Dr. Cross with an ancient (8 Century BCE) inscription . He read it like I would read a newspaper.
    He will be missed. Baruch Dayan Emet.

    [...] West expressed his condolences, passed on the remarks of Peter Machinist, and called attention to the reflections of Christopher Rollston. [...]
