Farewell to David McCullough

The great author and historian David McCullough has died.

He was a longtime West Tisbury resident, so when we read one of his books in high school—I forget which one, but it was amazing—it was cool to think it was a local author.

We would see him in the community from time to time. I remember passing him not many years ago as he was coming out of the drugstore.

He also appears in this documentary about the Nobska, our beloved, now scrapped steamship.

I also see this morning that Raymond Briggs has died. The Snowman is, of course, amazing.

I never thought this would be the “death blog” but there do seem to be a great many passings of note lately.
