I am very sad to report the passing of my colleague Professor Laura Chisolm who battled metatstatic breast cancer for some years with quiet dignity. When I joined the faculty at CWRU she was one of the few senior tenured women on the faculty and she was a strong mentor to those who came after her. She was a terrific and popular teacher and a good friend. There will be a memorial service for her tomorrow in Cleveland. Details have been posted at the Wills, Trusts & Estates Prof Blog.
