I am saddened by the passing of Dr. Lorch. He was simply a wonderful man whose dedication ending segregation and promote equal rights for all was immeasurable. I had the great pleasure and opportunity to meet and connect with him during a program for women in mathematics several years ago. To listen to him talk was like watching the cosmos - lots of energy, history, and promise.
