Tribute to Dr. Adam Giesinger



Dear Friends,

Last evening we received word that Dr. Adam Giesinger died "very quietly" June 5th, 2004, at 3:15 am. Adam had been in the hospital after collapsing about five weeks ago in his home in Winnipeg, Canada. He was 95 years of age, born the 6th of February 1909, and shall be missed dearly by those of us who knew him, especially by his close-knit and caring family. He will also be mourned by those who have benefited so greatly from his careful and dedicated research and publications. His funeral is scheduled for Thursday, June 10th.

Adam had lost much of his eyesight and hearing these last few years. Still, as was his won't, he continued to take care of himself and his correspondence beside his collection of books, journals and scholarly materials. The entire German-Russian community has lost another of its respected sons and its most beloved historian. We hope a Moment of Silence might be allotted him at both our summer conventions.

Lewis and Dona-Reeves Marquardt, Austin, Texas
