Sam Schuman
I and my wife Sheila were deeply saddened by the news of Sam’s death. He
was, as many of you know, one of the founding fathers of the Nabokov
Society and largely responsible for its inclusion in the MLA. We knew
him for nearly forty years and even briefly exchanged our homes in North
Carolina and California for a brief vacation, as well as many encounters at
meetings in the US and abroad. A couple of weeks ago I sent off a brief
review of
his new Nabokov and Shakespeare book and sent him a preview copy. I was
rather surprised when I didn’t hear back. He was a remarkable man and
will be
much missed by many.
