Date: Mon, 1 May 1995 19:22:23 -0400 From: AAllan[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]AOL.COM Subject: Allen Walker Read again In New York City Saturday evening (April 29), I had the pleasure of verifying John Algeo's report about AWR and his wife Charlotte. They came to attend the Haskins Lecture at the annual meeting of the American Council of Learned Societies, to which ADS belongs; and they came half an hour early, to get center aisle seats in the second row. They were in good spirits, though they did not get around as briskly as they used to. Allen told us (Fred Cassidy, Ron Butters, David Barnhart being other ADS-ers there) that his hearing aid was malfunctioning, so he had just sent it off for repairs. The lecturer, on the customary theme of "A Life of Learning," retrospected her curriculum vitae so thoroughly that it took her 80 minutes. But while the rest of us occasionally nodded, the Reads remained alert. I'll post some other news about ACLS as time goes on. Interesting information at that meeting about electronic journals. - Allan Metcalf
