Re: Jim Hornfischer
Naval History magazine for Aug. 2021 (Vol. 35 Num. 4, pp. 32-33) has a fine eulogy for Mr. Hornfischer.
Just got a note from the Nimitz Museum that Naval Historian passed
away June 1, 2021 at the age of 55.
I had the extreme pleasure of meeting him at one of the Museums
symposiums in Fredericksburg. At about 6'3" he was truly an imposing figure and very open to discussing his many books and where he might head next in his research.
We will all miss what might have been had Jim lived for another 20 years.
