Re: IN MEMORIAM STANLEY I. KUTLER (10 August 1934 -- 7 April 2015)

Today (11 April 2015) THE NEW YORK TIMES published its obituary for Prof. Kutler. The URL is as follows:

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/12/us/stanley-i-kutler-80-historian-who-w...

I note further that in my attempt to correct my original post I did not make a complete correction -- Prof. Kutler began teaching at the University of Wisconsin in 1964, not 1980, and retired in 1996, not 1990. I apologize for the need for these corrections, which I will cite to my students to illustrate that they, like their instructor, have to take ever-greater pains to get their work right.

Re: IN MEMORIAM STANLEY I. KUTLER (10 August 1934 -- 7 April 2015)

I am informed that my obituary for Prof. Stanley I. Kutler requires a correction to the second half of the second paragraph. It should read as follows:

"He taught briefly at Penn State University (instructor, 1960-1962) and then at San Diego State College (assistant professor 1962–1964). In 1980, he joined the faculty of the University of Wisconsin (associate professor 1964-1970, professor of history 1970–1990), occasionally teaching as well in the law school, until his retirement in 1990."

I apologize for the error.
