Helen S. Lang, 69, died in Riverdale, NY on June 20th, after a more than year-long struggle with brain cancer. Born in Urbana, IL, she grew up in Albuquerque, received her B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of Colorado and then her Ph.D. in Classical Philosophy from the University of Toronto. After teaching for more than twenty years at Trinity College, Hartford, where she was the Koeppel Professor of Classical Studies, she became Chair of the Villanova University Philosophy Department and was a department member at the time of her death. Her books, other writings, and lectures have had a strong influence on the study of Greek philosophy, especially on the analysis of Aristotle. She is survived by her brother, Richard Schutzberger, her two daughters Ariella Lang (Alex) and Jessica Lang (Joerg), and six grandchildren. A graveside service was held on June 21st, and Shiva continues through the week. Contributions in memory of Helen S. Lang may be made in her name to Darkhei Noam Synagogue, www.dnoam.org.

I was so sorry to hear about Helen's death.

I knew Helen at Trinity College a long time ago when I was an adjunct instructor in the Modern Languages Department. She was wonderful and I know that my late husband Ken was very fond of her and considered her a great scholar.

My sincerest condolences to all friends and family of Helen Lang. I would not have made it through Trinity College without her; I took as many classes with her as I could and loved every one of them. May he memory be a blessing. Michael Chazan
