Farewell, Ed Quillen

Document Actions

I'm not much on being anyone's fan, but I will have to live with my failure to ever write in to thank Ed Quillen for repeatedly sharing his knowledge and sharp, long-view perceptions that felt as right and big as the West (HCN, 6/25/12, "Dear Friends"). I never met Ed. I didn't always agree with him. But I have lost a friend and precious rare scholar. It's a damn good thing that I read every word of every issue, or I wouldn't even have known of our loss. Thanks so much, and so long, Ed. (Columnist and HCN contributor Ed Quillen passed away at his home in Salida, Colo., June 3.)
