OBIT: Bill Deverell on Kevin Starr

Dear H-Californians,

As most of you know by now, this week we lost one of the great ones, one of the monumental figures in the scholarship of  California history, Kevin Starr.  There have been a number of obituataries penned and published over the past few days, but this one, by historian and colleague of Kevin's and many of us, Bill Deverell, best captures all that Kevin was: erudite, incisive, witty, generous, and so much more.  This appeared in today's Los Angeles Times.
