Remembrances, Obituary On-Line: Gordon Morris Bakken

Dear friends and colleagues,

We at the Society for Historians of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era write with sorrow in light of the recent death of a colleague, friend, and dedicated SHGAPE member: Gordon Bakken. For us, however, while Gordon's professional life was marked by a tremendous and lengthy list of accomplishments, which are worthy of noting and celebrating, it was his generosity and effect on people that may be hardest to sum up, that we will miss most, and that we are eager to commemorate amidst our grief at his passing.
