Post-tenure Heilbrun

August 23, 1992

With regard to Kay Mills' "Life After a Tenured Position" ( July 19) about Carolyn Heilbrun: When was the last time anyone gave up a cushy, tenured position because she saw someone else treated shabbily?

Columbia University will look a long time before finding someone with Heilbrun's brilliance, integrity and courage. Could the administration there be unaware that Heilbrun is, in another life, the superb mystery writer, Amanda Cross. As her avid readers all realize, Cross has "How to Murder an Academic" down to a cold science.
