Ralph Maud 1928 - 2014

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of Emeritus Professor Ralph Maud. He passed away on Monday, December 8th, just shy of his 86th birthday. Ralph arrived in the earliest days of the English Department at SFU, and was a prolific and world-renowned scholar, particularly of Dylan Thomas and Charles Olson. He will be greatly missed.
