Thank you to Allan MacNeill for the following announcement:
Sorry about the placement of this, but Will Provine, perhaps the greatest historian of evolutionary biology of the 20th century, has died. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 1995, had it surgically removed and underwent chemo and radiation. The tumor returned about four years ago and eventually killed him. Here is a link to his FaceBook page announcing his passing:
Will was an unusually generous, gentle, and kind man. He always invited creationists and ID supporters to his evolution class, and always treated them with the utmost respect. He was a mentor to me and to hundreds of other historians, philosophers, and practitioners of evolutionary biology and population genetics. We will miss him.
