Stanley Weinstein 1929-2017
It is with great regret that we announce that Stan Weinstein, Professor Emeritus at Yale University and specialist in Japanese and Chinese Buddhism, passed away on September 17, 2017. Stan received degrees from Komazawa University and Tokyo University, and completed his Ph.D. at Harvard under Nagatomi Masatoshi in 1966. He first taught at the School of African and Oriental Studies at the University of London and later moved to Yale University, where during his long tenure he trained many Ph.D. students. Stan was the author of Buddhism Under the T’ang, and wrote numerous articles, including more than a hundred entries for the Encyclopedia of Japan. A memorial service will be held at the “Sixth Floor Common Area” of the Whitney Center at 11AM on Monday, September 25 (200 Leeder Hill Drive, Hamden, CT 06517). A full obituary will appear in a later post.
