Portrait of Durants

July 05, 1987

How appropriate of you to pay tribute to such giants as Will and Ariel Durant and Harvey S. Perloff around Memorial Day.

The Durants opened up a whole new world for me with "The Story of Philosophy" which was required reading my freshman year and converted me into a lifelong aficionado.

As Sam Hall Kaplan states, Dr. Perloff was in a class by himself in academia, and it is reassuring to know that both he and his beloved Mimi knew it during his lifetime.
