We received the following letter in response to our web announcementa of the decision of the New York Court of Appeals:

I was Norman Golb’s camp-mate and school-mate, and I can only feel utter sympathy for what has happened. I have not been in touch with Norman for 70+ years, but he is a man who would take himself and his own work very seriously and is probably deeply bereaved by the events following the disclosure of his son’s crimes. Whatever determined his son’s actions may never be known outside his family, but it is a tragic culmination to come towards the end of a scholar’s career.
