In Memory of Louis Wagner
I was shocked and saddened to learn of Lou Wagner’s passing.
Lou Wagner was a talented Slavic academician and pedagogue, but I first grew to know him as the Treasurer of NASILP, virtually from its first day as an incorporated professional organization—a pioneering one—of the uncommonly taught languages.
From Daniel Gross,
This is terrible news for NASILP and for all of us who knew him and worked with him. NASILP members, officers, and board members come and go, but as NASILP Treasurer for 36 years, Lou served faithfully in the longest tenure of any NASILP Officer in the organization’s records.
