I am sorry to report that Prof. Carin M. Green of the University of Iowa died on July 2. Prof. Green served the Society in a number of ways, including terms on the Development, Translations, and Placement (twice) Committees. She asked that there be no funeral services, and that memorial notices be as brief as possible.
I am very sorry to report that Barbara F. McManus died this morning after a long and very brave battle with cancer. Professor McManus received her B.A. from the College of New Rochelle, summa cum laude, in 1964 and her Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from Harvard in 1975. She began teaching at the College of New Rochelle as an Instructor in 1967 and remained there until she retired from the post of Professor of Classics in 2000.
I regret to report the death of Charles Henderson, Jr., Secretary-Treasurer of the Society from 1962-1965. I had the pleasure of talking to Charles at many meetings of both the SCS and of the Classical Association of New England (CANE) over the years, and I will miss him a great deal. I am very grateful to Ward Briggs for writing this memorial notice for the SCS.
