Dear All,

The collective trauma around Barb’s death has made it challenging to assemble a worthy obituary quickly, but one will appear in the next issue of Himalayan Linguistics, coordinated by Kristine Hildebrandt.

There was a beautiful conference in her honor at Uni Melbourne in October.

And here is an obituary by Nick Evans:

Australian linguist was creative and wide-ranging

She is sorely missed.

Best wishes,

I was surprised I had not seen an obituary about her. Can anyone write one up and post it to the TB list? She made very solid contributions to TB linguistics and should be recognized for them. (I used to have a web page for “Cado Vir” (fallen heros) as part of my Tibeto-Burman Domain website, but as the Domain became anachronistic, and expensive to maintain, I closed it down a couple of years ago, but still try to collect information about such people, and may develop it again as part of my personal site.)
