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:
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!
