Remembering Professor Pinsker
I was very sorry to read in the last issue of the passing of longtime English Professor Sanford Pinsker. I took a course with him that included an unforgettable visit by future Nobel Prize winner Isaac Bashevis Singer.
As the obituary makes clear, Professor Pinsker was remarkably prolific in his publications and editorships. But he never placed publications above teaching, and was an inspiring and insightful teacher.
F&M was fortunate to have had Professor Pinsker on its faculty for 37 years.
