I want to bring your attention to someone I knew some 35 years ago – Marshall Baron. I never forgot Marshall: thanks to his sister Merle, she has done a terrific service to the world by bringing Marshall’s work to a wider audience via the web. Moreover, for us who were so privileged to have come into Marshall’s orbit it is very interesting to note that that the comments on the MB website have a recurring theme: Marshall’s kindness and deep knowledge of things that I now treasure. I now know of the Skowhegan School in Maine which Marshall attended (1966–1968), where I was lucky to visit decades after Marshall was there. Marshall you are alive and well in my mind: funny how things turn out in that I’m the most unlikely host/vehicle for the Marshall Baron memory/meme.
