Subject: Sad News: David Greetham Dear All, We all received sad news today about David Greetham, who was a giant in textual studies. He passed away on March 24, 2020 after a long illness. He was a massive influence on generations of graduate students and invited everyone in to embrace all kinds of textual scholarship. He was capacious and generous. He was my mentor and friend - I would not be the scholar I am without his influence and urgings to experiment and explore. I am saddened that we didn't get one last chat about our latest projects and to bring him the release of my latest work for an afternoon chat. During my oral exams studying at The Graduate Center, he sat with me each week for 2 hours for a year to stoke my enthusiasm for the field and to expand my ideas. He was invested in everyone he mentored. In 2015, Marta Werner, editor of /Textual Cultures/, invited some of us to write about David's largesse for the 9.1 edition of /Textual Cultures/. I offer my pre-print version of my article for your enjoyment: "Marking the Body, Marking the Text: David Greetham's 'Archive Fever.'" Textual Cultures 9.1 (Oct 2015).
