A gracious and respectable person whose work has done so much to bring so much joy to many of us in these troubled times hard to deal with (2 Tim 3:1). Perhaps more will continue to have positive experiences from a wonderful work that has an impactful contribution to life and its anxieties.

Having him here in San Antonio was like having a bright light in a dark room.
He will be missed. He was a true intellectual, quite a rare thing in San Antonio.

The loss of his thoughts and his voice leaves the world a sadder, poorer and less literate place.

We were very privileged to have Dr. Barzun at our "Classic Books" meeting one day, and to have an autographed copy of his "From Dawn to Decadence" in our Northwood Presbyterian Church Library.

I was a student attending Prof. Barzun's graduate history department class on Social and Cultural History of Europe in 1950/51. At first his lectures were far more learned and erudite than I could comprehend. By the end of the course, happily, I belive that I could understand most, but not necessarily all of his resoning, knowledge, content and linkages. Yet I remain to this day a full admirer of his teaching and writing. Murray Feshbach, Ph.D., Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Washington, DC

I had the delight and pleasure to work for Mr. Barzun for several years. He always showed me the highest standard of ethics and business propriety. He was an inspiration. My sincere condolences to Mrs. Barzun and family.
