Sad News: The Death of Frank Moore Cross

17 Oct

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!

Sincerely,

Peter

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.
