A tribute to Larry

Even as he lay sick in his hospital bed, only weeks before his death, Larry DuPraz still had it in him to pick up the phone and give me hell. As usual, there was something in the morning's paper that wasn't quite right.

Larry cared deeply about the 'Prince,' and he never let us forget that we should too. No error was too small to correct. No mistake was too small to regret. Excellence in everything we do was the only thing he would -- and we should, he told us -- accept.

Many alumni have written to me in recent weeks, asking for a forum to share their memories of Larry. We'll post everything we receive on this blog. (Those interested in contributing should email me.) I hope that here we can, in some small way, all pay tribute to a man who gave so much to The Daily Princetonian, and to us.
