In Memoriam: Calvin Massey (1949-2015)

Alas, another life taken by cancer to report today:   Professor Massey was a distinguished constitutional law scholar, who spent most of his career at UC Hastings, before moving in 2012 to take up the Daniel Webster Chair at the law school at the University of New Hampshire.  I will add a link to a memorial notice when one appears.

UPDATE:  An obituary.
