Sent: Thursday, December 06, 2012 Subject: Re: Obituary: Professor Jim Searing ALL - I have been too shocked by the sad news of Jim's passing to join in the eulogies until now - not least because one of the highlights of the meeting of the ASA last week for me was a lively, witty, smart, and engaging chat with Jim about approaches to teaching the survey of early African history that we discovered that we shared. I think that we all felt that way about Jim - a stimulating colleague in a spirit of warm friendship. Fortunately we have a solid corpus of his thought in published form. It won't be the same without the thinker, and friend. JOE MILLER (University of Virginia)
