To the Editor:

Professor Joseph Morton will be greatly missed.

His “On This Day” columns were a special highlight in the Northwest Herald each Monday. He was most certainly a great student of history who loved the subject and, obviously, enjoyed his research.

He was an excellent writer from whom readers and students learned a great deal about some famous and infamous people in our nation’s past.

Thank you, Professor Morton. Rest in peace.
