Dear Editor,

I have just learned that our former colleague Edmund DeJarnette has died. Here is the obituary which appeared last month in the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Ed DeJarnette was one of the most accomplished Africanists in the Foreign Service, and served three times as ambassador, to the Central African Republic, Tanzania, and Angola. From the obituary you may see that he was active in many fields after retiring from our Service.
