In Memoriam

Josephine Roberts

It was with the greatest sadness that the WWP received the news of the tragic death of Professor Josephine Roberts on 26 August as a result of an automobile accident.

Dr. Roberts was the William A. Read Professor of English at Louisiana State University where she was also awarded the LSU Foundation Distinguished Faculty Award in 1989. She was a major figure in Renaissance scholarship and a longtime supporter and Research Board member of the Women Writers Project.

The entire WWP staff extends our most sincere condolences to Professor Roberts´ family.
