Obit watch: March 6, 2012.

Severn Parker Costin Duvall, emeritus professor of English at Washington and Lee University, has passed away.

I did not know Dr. Duvall; I was sent this obit by a family member. But Dr. Duvall sounds like someone I would very much enjoyed knowing, and taking classes from.

(I do wonder how much overlap there is in the Venn diagram of “English professors” and “Marines”. I also wonder how many of the people who fit in both categories teach at W&L.)
