Professor Alan F. Segal died yesterday. He was a wonderful and generous colleague and friend. Alan Segal, Professor Emeritus of Religion and Ingeborg Rennert Professor Emeritus of Judaic Studies was a member of the Barnard faculty from 1980 until he retired just this past December.
There will be a private family memorial tomorrow but no public funeral. If you wish to support the Alan Segal Student Research Fund that was established recently in connection with his retirement, you may make out
checks to Barnard College and send them to Professor Elizabeth Castelli, Chair of Religion.
