(Anselm Hollo 1934-2013)

Sad news - our dear dear friend and brother, Anselm Hollo died this morning, following a protracted fight against a persistent meningioma and resultant complications. He was 78. More appreciations (many more appreciations) to follow.

Our birthday celebration of some of his remarkable achievements can be found here.

  1. Tom's photos, esp. the bottom one, very moving

    There's some testimony from other friends of AH here.

  3. I'm glad you put up this post, and there's some good links here about dear Anselm. I think of Anselm's lines upon Allen G dying:

    brave old lion
    gone out of reach now
    through the one door
    awaits us all

    I posted my remembrances of Anselm on my blog too.
