In an academic world thickly populated with persons of unlimited ego but of limited scholarly output, Frank Kennedy stands out as a remarkable exception. On the one hand he is the author of scholarly writings too numerous to recount; on the other he is a man of deep humility. A reader or listener soon learns he has strong views which he states with power and precision. Yet his humility is such that he will listen patiently to the most idiotic view of a colleague or student and will kindly help them find their way.
