John Gardner (1965-2019)

Another sad death to report.  John Gardner, Senior Research Fellow at All Souls College at Oxford, has passed away from cancer at the age of 54.  I met him only once.  He was interesting, interested, charming, and kind.  The Oxford obituary is here.

How very sad for not only his family but the academic community. John was brilliant and clever, with always insightful and useful comments, even if one ultimately disagreed. He and Tony Honore arranged my visit to Oxford, fellowship at Brasenose College, and co-teaching responsibilities for several BCL courses in 1995, during which I came to appreciate even more his brilliance and wit. The academy has lost a major figure with much still left to contribute.
