It is with great sorrow that I have learned of the passing of Professor Genovese. Gene was one of America's greatest historians. I shall never forget his example of scholarship
and his superb teaching at the University of Rochester where I was privileged to be one of his students. I shall always be grateful to him for leading me to the study of southern history, slavery, and religion. Gene was a remarkable mentor and teacher for me and so many others. May the angels lead him to paradise to be with Betsy, as well as to be with all those to whom his scholarship gave a voice. And may God continue to bless Gene's family at his difficult time.

I was privileged to get to know Gene at the National Humanities Center in 1988-89 when we were both fellows. I respected his intellectual toughness and energy and his gracious kindness. Several years later I joined the faculty at Emory where I got to know Gene and Elizabeth as colleagues. Separately and together they displayed the best of the intellectual life: passion, skepticism, and an appreciation of how it was important to pay attention to points of view that initially may seem wrong-headed. Our understanding of the tangled path of race and gender in America has been enlarged by the hard and patient work each of them have done. I am thankful that our lives intersected along the way. Rest in peace, Gene. We will not forget all you have given us.
