BARZUN--Jacques. Reading Reform Foundation notes with profound sorrow the death of Professor Jacques Barzun, an honorary trustee of our Board of Trustees. His approval of our work in the teaching of reading was the greatest honor we could have had. We shall miss his voice that spoke for intellectual endeavor as a defense of the humane and the democratic.
