I am sorry to hear (via Harvard University Press' twitter feed, @Harvard_Press) that distinguished historian Thomas McCraw has passed away. The Boston Globeis reporting that he passed away on November 3. McCraw was born in Corinth, Mississippi and attended Ole Miss on a Naval ROTC scholarship, then served in the Navy and later attended the University of Wisconsin for his Ph.D. in history. He later taught for some year at UT-Austin before moving to Harvard Business School in 1976. He is best known for his book Prophets of Regulation: Charles Francis Adams, Louis D. Brandeis, James M, Landis and Alfred E. Kahn, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1985.
