RIP Karl Heinz Göller

I had no idea Karl Heinz Göller had died. I looked for more information, but found none. Do any Wordhoarders know anything?

The date of his birth surprises me. The last time I saw him he must have been 80 already, and I'd have guessed his age closer to 60. Back then, he was hale-looking indeed, and a very gracious person.

Medievalism announces sessions being organized in his honor at the 2010 Congress.

    Prof. Göller was certainly both a gentleman and a scholar in the fullest sense of those words. Meeting him was a wonderful, charmed experience. RIP.

    Dear Prof. Nokes,
    dear John,
    thank you so much for your gracious comments on the demise of my husband. I miss him immensely.
