It is with great sadness that the Department of Classics announces the passing of Professor Mark Edwards, former Department Chair, on August 26th. A native Brit who had previously taught at Brown University and Queen's University, Ontario, Mark arrived at Stanford in 1969. Although widely respected as a scholar of Homeric epics, Mark was better known for his quiet humor and his dedication to his students. Even in retirement, Mark remained a close affiliate and friend of the department. Please click here to view collected tributes from Mark's friends, students, and colleagues.
