George Kimball III
December 20, 1943 – July 6, 2011

From Library of America, July 7, 2011
The Library of America notes with sadness the passing of George Kimball yesterday at his home in New York. It was a pleasure and an inspiration for all of us to collaborate with George on At the Fights and the book will stand as a lasting tribute to him and to the writers whose work was so important to him.

Shortly after George’s passing a blog was set up to allow for personal tributes. This blog is no longer active, but the previous contents was archived.
