I was really grieved to hear the sad news. Dr. Kenneth Kennedy was such a professional and nice author of our SCIRP(www.scirp.org). I have contacted Dr. Kenneth Kennedy for several times.

His paper :"Were There Commercial Communications between Prehistoric Harappans and African Populations?" published on our Advances in Anthropology journal has been downloaded for more than 1,000 tiimes.


I know Prof.Kennedy very closely since I have started the studies on palaeoanthropology of the human settlements of Western Ghats of Kerala.He read out many of my manuscripts and done excellent edifications and gave me ample guidance and help to my studies.No more to say ,respecting his love and dedication.

I hope Mrs. Kennedy is well - I still fondly recall all her desserts she made for us in class sessions at their home. My condolences.
