Sad News: The Passing of Father Robert Drinan of Georgetown

The legal profession, the academy, human rights, the church, and legal ethics--among many other constituencies and families--lost a great one yesterday with the passing of Professor Robert F. Drinan, S.J., of Georgetown.  Obviously there is more to be said in time to come, but for this morning here are links to the University's tribute to Father Drinan, as well as to the law school's own announcement, which in turn helpfully links initial newspaper stories and other outpourings of thoughts, and has a place for readers' remembrances. 

Update:  Nice post and comments also found at WSJ law blog here.  [Alan Childress]

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Sad News: The Passing of Father Robert Drinan of Georgetown:


I played my recorder concerto accompanied by Father Robert Drinan's sibling sister, Catherine, at her house in Germany several years ago. He made us both feel like world famous performers, but I shall never forget our great debate regarding my feminist view on why women must have the right to choose abortion. Even his shock about my radical views was expressed intellectually gentle! He developed our discussion into an acceptable understanding of all points made. His spirit and dedication will be always with us.
