I've studied with him since the 40s, CBS Invitation to Learning, his Lowell lectures at the Boston Public Library, and the Barzun-Trilling seminar. Fare Forward.

Professor Barzun was a legend when I attended Columbia College. However, I never met him in person until many years later, when he graced us with his presence at a Columbia alumni gathering in Washington DC. Au revoir to a great man whose light will continue to illuminate all who read his many works.

Reading Jacques Barzun changed my life. His wise words gave me the intellectual light and nourishment to grow as a thinker and citizen.

That Dr. Barzun's mind remained so keen for years following his hundredth birthday is something we all must celebrate. I am sorry he won't be here to enjoy his 105th birthday this November 30th. He has left so much for us to treasure, and to emulate, that we can only be thankful that he had so much time to educate us and to teach us valuable lessons in civility.

My condolences to Dr. Barzun's family and his many close and dear friends.

May he rest in eternal peace.

A wonderful man and mind, he will be missed, and his influence will grow. As he "strolled" with William James, so generations yet unborn will learn the benefits of strolling with Jacques Barzun.

He was indeed unique: both a great and good man.

"Sitting sided by side with Jacques at the head of a long table week after week made the intellectual ground on which I walked and the intellectual air I breathed." So Lionel Trilling. And so, I know, many of us reading Jacques' many books over many years. Many thanks and much love, Jacques, and condolences "to all whom it may concern."

Mr. Barzun was an inspiration and guide to me. We never met but we touched.
