Pauline Maier RIP
I wanted to note with sadness the death of Professor Pauline Maier today. Professor Maier was a distinguished American historian who did fabulous work in books on the Declaration of Independence and on the ratification of the Constitution. She was also a generous colleague. We exchanged several emails over the past year about my draft article on the Bill of Rights and about Bingham, as her next project was on the history of the Bill of Rights. Although she did not know me at all, she gave me wonderful comments and shared her excitement about her next book. Alas, now it will not be written.
