      ***********

      James Barr, Distinguished Professor of Hebrew Bible at Vanderbilt
      University from 1989 until his retirement in 1998, died on 14
      October 2006 in Claremont, California. Prior to his tenure at
      Vanderbilt he was on the faculty of Oxford University from 1976 to
      1989, first as the Oriel Professor of the Interpretation of Holy
      Scripture and later as the Regius Professor of Hebrew.

      He is survived by his wife Jane Barr and children Catherine, Allan,
      and Stephen. A memorial service will be held in the chapel of
      Claremont School of Theology, 1325 N. College Avenue, Claremont,
      California, on Wednesday, 18 October 2006, at 3:00 p.m.



      [A brief notice about James Barr (1924-2006) is posted at
      <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Barr_%28Biblical_scholar%29>. I
      have also learnt that Professor had made quite a good recovery
      after a terrible fall last year, but became gravely ill after a
      second fall this June and never really regained consciousness after
      mid-August.]
