I just found this obit. Dr. Burto was my professor in 1970-71, and it was a privilege. He was one of the best teachers I ever had, and even today as I teach, I try to pepper my classes with a fact, story, anecdote from another subject area or from life experience to motivate my students as he did me. My condolences to Prof. Barnet.

I was a student at Lowell State in 1954-1959 and was privileged to be in his classes. He was a gifted teacher and a lovely person. He was very generous in his willingness to help me with my creative writing. Please accept my condolences.

I was a Dr. Burto groupie from 1978-1982. He was an exceptional professor who brought literature to life. He was a gift to his students. He had such dignity and grace and made us fall deeper in love with books and learning in every class he taught.

Bill Burto was an accomplished gardener and devotee of hostas—which are native to Japan. As a copy editor of The Hosta Journal (the publication of the American Hosta Society) he took the homespun prose of gardeners from around the world and made them sound positively lyrical—while maintaining their “voice'. His small Cambridge garden was packed with the choicest hostas purchased from boutique specialty nurseries, given by friends and personally gathered in the wilds of Japan's rugged mountains and remote offshore islands. And he will be remembered just as much as the perpetually upbeat self-effacing man who had a gift for encouraging young gardeners and making friends.
