This is such sad news. David was a gentleman and a scholar, and a mentor to so many archivists. I got to spend time with him at conferences and with his students in Austin, and he was always the most fun person in the room.

I once tried to make a healthier meatloaf by using ground turkey instead of beef. It came out of the oven looking like something you’d find on the autopsy table in a “CSI” episode.
