BBC Announcement of Prof. Holmes' passing
- List:Here is the BBC website with news of Richard Holmes' death.
No cause of death is given, but he had been very ill for sometime, and the last communication I had from him he was "optimistic" about his prospects.Sadly that optimism was not to be fulfilled.
He had agreed to come to Canada next year and to be the keynote speaker at the 1812 Symposium in February.

- Sad news indeed! He will be greatly missed by our community and by many others as well. I always found his books tremendous resources, filled with useful and well-documented information.
My condolences to his family and friends.
