In August, former students and colleagues gathered at the Sienna Hotel to celebrate the 80th birthday of Jerzy Linderski, Paddison Professor of Latin Emeritus. The event was organized by three of Prof. Linderki’s dissertation advisees, Tim Moore, PhD ’86; Hans Mueller, PhD ’94; and Christoph Konrad, PhD ’85. To add to the festivities, Corey Brennan, representing Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and its libraries, presented Prof. Linderski with a certificate of appreciate for Prof. Linderski’s contributions to the field. Dinner was followed by a series of eulogies, to which Prof. Linderski responded with a gracious and elegant speech in Latin. It was an impressive tribute to an outstanding scholar, teacher, and mentor.
