Editorial – Passings by Geoffrey Sykes
Fortuitous meetings with three scholars provide the basis for an unusual reflection at the time of their passing. The meeting with Solomon Marcus occurred in Calea Victoria, Bucharest Romania, and a main elegant thoroughfare, lined with embassies, main hotels, galleries, fashion shops, restaurants and museums. Visitors can be surprised by the urban buildings – much of it coming from Parisian inspired construction early in the twentieth century. Yet my meeting with Marcus was surprising in a quite unexpected way.
