Passing of Prof. Richard Bartlett


Dr. Richard Bartlett, historian of the American West and professor of history at FSU for more than three decades, passed away in Knoxville last month. His obituary lists five books published before retirement, and five books written after retirement. Prof. Ed Wynot notes that "Dick was one of the nicest persons you could ever hope to meet, let alone work alongside. He didn't have a mean bone in his body, and was especially helpful to new faculty starting their academic careers." The department offers its condolences to his family, students, and friends.
