So sorry to have missed this news earlier, and sorrier still that Michael has died. While he will be terribly missed his work will certainly live on.

I was Mike's colleague at the Hagley Library for many years. He was a kind, intelligent and understanding person. I am so sorry for the family's great loss. May his memory be for a blessing.

Just heard about Michael's death on WBAI's "Law & Disorder." Shocked and saddened. He was a wonderful scholar, and person, who was extremely helpful during the years I headed the National Committee to Reopen the Rosenberg Case. He will be sorely missed.

Dear Jeanne, It was a shock to see the word obituary! What can I say? Michael's suffering has ended but the rest of us remain. I will be with you going forward in this new passage in your life.
