Interesting Man

This seems like a heavy read at first, but it's a great obit on an interesting guy: Jacques Barzun. Barzun devoted his life to Columbia and helped design its core curriculum. He also seems to have had some Delbanco-esque thoughts on the purpose of a university (though Delbanco probably had Barzun-esque thoughts as Barzun was 104 and definitely came first).
