This past week-end we learned of the passing of our colleague and friend, Masao Miyoshi Ph.D., holder of the Hajime Mori Endowed Chair in Japanese Language and Literature, (UCSD Literature Department 1986-2004). Many of us knew Masao and we are deeply saddened by the loss of an important person in the history of the Department of Literature.
