Dear Katie, dear colleagues,

this is very sad news. Although I did not have the chance to meet Donald 
Daviau personally, as a member of MALCA/ASA I soon understood that he 
was a very important scholar, teacher of Austrian Literature and 
culture, and of course as a founder of our organization and of Ariadne 
Press. I would like to express my sincere condolences to Donald's family 
and friends, as well as to his colleagues who cooperated with him.

Best wishes,
Susanne
