Mecham Memorial fund

Friends and Colleagues:

As some of you might already know, June Mecham, medievalist at the University of Nebraska, Omaha, died (after a brief struggle with cancer) the weekend of MAMA. Her final paper was read at our conference. She had just received an A&S Teaching Award and Brepols has agreed to publish her manuscript calling it "a magnificent synthesis".

June has a small daughter and a memorial fund has been established in June's name for Evelyn's college fund.

On behalf of MAMA I am going to contribute to this fund. The profession, and we personally, have lost a friend with a very promising future in medieval studies.

Moreover, I do encourage anyone who would like to give to the fund to send your contribution to:

Dr. Mark Scherer
