The Unbound Prometheus was one of the first books that turned me on to economic history. David was a giant -- but gentle with struggling young scholars. So many fine memories of this lovely man.

Richard,

I just heard about your Dad's passing yesterday through Stan Engerman. I admired his work since I was a grad student in the 1950s, but I was privileged to meet privileged to meet him twice. Once was in Boston at your house for shabbat dinner. The other was at a meeting of The Historical Society in Atlanta when we sat on the same panel. At some point -I don't recall for what remark- I felt a pat on the back. Coming from the sharp mind to which the hand was attached, it was better than ovation from a multitude. I can only hope that you and your lovely daughters (and granddaughters?) are consoled by the knowledge of having had a progenitor who lived so full and fruitful a life.

With warmest regards,
Seymour Drescher

I send my deep sympathy to the Landes family. David was my Ph.D advisor and mentor many years ago and I valued his friendship and intellectual example greatly.
