Richard Timberlake turns 90 on June 24; here is an appreciation I wrote of him (prefaced by some words not by me). His forthcoming book Constitutional Money: A Review of the Supreme Court's Monetary Decisions, scheduled for publication in about six months, will be of interest to many readers of this blog.

Anna Schwartz, Milton Friedman’s coauthor on the second most influential monetary book of the 20th century (after Keynes’s General Theory) died on June 21.

Gitta Sereny died on June 14. She was a journalist and historian, and the stepdaughter of Ludwig von Mises.

The right of making snarky comments on this post is reserved to those who have written a book as good as any of these three have.
