How could Allan do it? Even those of us blessed to have known Allan over many years cannot fully grasp the answer.

He gracefully and lovingly sprinkled these qualities throughout his significant articles, engaging and often path-breaking teaching, administrative acuity, and gift for both deep friendship and casual conversation-to say nothing of the key role he played in the belated yet marked success of the Red Sox. And, oh - was Allan ever funny!
