- Dear ANE-2 List Members,
“News has come of the death of Donny George in Toronto, March 11, 2011.”
Many of us had come yesterday with great anticipation to hear the guest-lecture of Donny George on the campus of the University of Toronto. It was quite disappointing to hear that his lecture on the treasures at Nimrud was being cancelled.
It was infinitely more disheartening to hear this morning that he had passed away en route from Stony Brook (NY) to Toronto. We truly have lost one of the giants in Mesopotamian archaeology.
