It is with sorrow that we report the passing of Professor Emeritus and former Department Chair James J. "Jerry" Murphy.
Our colleague Dr. James J. Murphy, (Ph.D., Stanford University, 1957), Professor Emeritus at UC Davis, passed away on Christmas Eve, 2021, at the age of 98. He remained alert and intellectually engaged until just a few days before his death. His final publication, The Oxford Handbook of Quintilian, which he co-edited, arrived exactly one week before he died.
