It is with a heavy heart that we must bid a fond farewell to Dr. Richard V. Lee, a friend of many including this Library and its Rare Book Room. Not often (enough) do we encounter a person with such passionate interest in humanity, science, exploration and teaching. Doc Lee was a genuinely good person and will be missed by all who had the good fortune to meet him.
