Louisiana and the world of classics have lost two longtime friends and supporters.

Carlos Fandal

Jane Webb informs us of the passing of Carlos Fandal, retired professor at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, at the end of October. From his obituary:

Carlos Fandal was also a life-long advocate for the study of Latin and the classics. He helped found the Louisiana Classical Association, which he served as an officer and as editor of The Classicist. He proposed the project for developing Latin programs for teaching Latin in rural Louisiana and participated in an NEH seminar in Rome in 1989 on “Roman Art in a Social Context.”

Earlier this week, we also lost Bonnie Owens from Denham Springs High School, suddenly and unexpectedly.  Bonnie had previously taught at the Dunham School and Hosanna Christian Academy.  She also served as Louisiana Junior Classical League’s State Chair, and continued to sponsor the Denham Springs Chapter of JCL.

We offer condolences to their families, friends, and colleagues.
