The Passing of Dr. Storer

Dr. N. Wyman Storer died in 1979, having suffered a heart attack, and he was buried in the University burial site west of the campus. I returned to Lawrence, Kansas, for his memorial service. His wife, Mary, their three children and his brother were present, as well as many friends and faculty members. He was one of the most ethical persons I ever met, and I am proud to have been his friend, student and colleague.

Into this Universe, and why not knowing,

Nor whence, like Water, willy-nilly flowing;

And out of it, as Wind along the Waste,

I know not whither, willy-nilly blowing. 

(Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, XXIX).
