Praising my fellow guest-blogger might be a bit gauche, but this is a wonderful memorial.

A great post about a great historian and a good person. I've heard it said that a really great historian doesn't write his or her master work until their late fifties or early sixties. Mark's early death deprived the rest of us the chance to see an outstanding historian rise to the peak of his powers.

Mark was not only smart and talented, he also freely shared his ideas and insights with others. I will miss seeing him at the conferences and in the archives. I will wonder what books and articles he would have written.
