Thank you for sharing this somber news. Joel helped me and numerous
others on many occasions. For example, he located the details of a
citation in the Boston Globe on microfilm for me. He provided valuable
insights and ideas on this list and elsewhere as indicated in his
death notices. Godspeed.

Joel was an independent scholar whose curiosity and diligence enriched us here and undoubtedly made a positive impact on many others who knew him.  His discoveries advanced knowledge of the English language and knowledge of the 18th century, a period that was clearly of great interest to him.  Below is a link to an obituary.
