Another loss, this one close to home. Retired classics teacher David Demaine passed away late last week. In the words of his colleague Atta Kurzmann, who traveled with him and a group of students on a 2012 NMH trip to India: "David's joyous curiosity and abundant laugh elevated our experience on a daily basis. We were in awe of his courage and strength of spirit, following such losses in his life." Our thoughts are with Dan Demaine '96 and his family.
