In Memoriam: Lawrence C. Becker, 79, of Roanoke, Virginia, USA, died on Thursday, 22 NOV 18 from a heart attack. Professor Becker was an inspiration to many contemporary Stoics for his pioneering scholarship in our ancient tradition. He was a member of the Stoic Registry, an Academic Fellow of the College of Stoic Philosophers, Kenan Professor Emeritus of the College of William and Mary, and a Fellow of Hollins University. It is with great respect and gratitude that we salute his life and contribution to the teachings of the Stoa.
The Stoic Registry is the oldest and the original Stoic community of the Internet, founded on the 8th of May, 1996. The purpose of the Registry is to bring together all those who are Stoics and who wish to be known by the commitment they have made.
