Walter Backstrom still owes me $20 | Letters
May 17, 2012 · 4:31 PM
Thanks for your thoughtful piece on Walter Backstrom. I had no idea he passed.
I remember fondly the debate style conversations Walter often engaged me in. I think I enjoyed my disagreement with him on many issues more than he enjoyed our occasional consensus.
I will miss his spark in our libraries.
Fittingly, he died owing me twenty bucks. You win that round, Walter!
