William J. Kirwin Jr., AM'51, PhD'64, of St. John's, Newfoundland, notes that in the April/01 "Investigations," we mangled the name of John Matthews Manly, the U of C English professor who with colleague Edith Rickert oversaw a compilation of the life records of Geoffrey Chaucer and prepared a critical edition (1940) of the Canterbury Tales.

In the June/01 "Class News," we put words in the wrong alumni mouths. Worse, we did it in big print. In truth, Barbara Deacon Van Arsdale, PhB'48, not Nancy Kerr Carroll, AB'48, wrote, "No Pulitzer or Nobel on my horizon but life is a grand prize in itself!" And Joan S. Friedman, AM'91, not Todd Beddad, MBA'91, noted, "After a three-year adventure of living in Mississippi, I am now back 'home' in California." We regret the errors.
