Greetings, all--
  I see by the brochure for the 2009 Conference in Elmira that another Tuckey award will be given, so I thought I would query the members here to see if any had memories of or anecdotes about John that they would be willing to share.  I am working on a collection of his writing, including putting back into print his Mark Twain and Little Satan.  I knew him as a graduate student, mentor, and member of his English department.  I would appreciate hearing from those of you who knew him as well.  Respond on or off-lline, as you deem appropriate.
