I have just learned, from David Auerbach, that Sylvain Bromberger has died. Sylvain was an old, old friend from my Harvard graduate school days, and we were then briefly colleagues at the University of Chicago from 1961-63. He spent most of his career at MIT. Not too long ago, when I gave a talk at MIT, we reconnected briefly. I have lovely memories of Sylvain, who was universally not only admired for his intelligence but loved as a human being. A little later on, I will write something of my memories of him. Sylvain was 94 when he passed away.
