From the Asheville Citizen-Times:
It is with great regret that we report the passing of Edwin L. Brown, former professor at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill.
"His research and teaching at UNC-Chapel Hill reflected his broad interests and lively curiosity, ranging from Latin poetry (especially Vergil) to Greek didactic poetry, the early Greek gods, and Greek and Roman astronomy, especially constellation names. He was particularly interested in the connections between the early Greeks and the Near East, an area of research that led him to study the Greek god Poseidon, the enigmatic early script known as Linear A, and numerous other thorny fields of inquiry."
