    The ACLS mourns the loss of its president, John H. D'Arms, who died early
    Tuesday, January 22, 2002, after a five month illness. As president since
    1997, John strengthened ACLS immeasurably and multiplied several-fold the
    support we can provide to the Humanities and related Social Sciences. His
    overwhelming dedication sets a very high standard.

    A funeral mass will be held at 11:00 am on Friday, January 25th at the
    Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, 980 Park Avenue at 84th Street, Manhattan.

    John's family has asked that in lieu of flowers contributions be made to
    ACLS, where a special fund has been established in his name. Contributions
    may be made to "ACLS/D'Arms fund."
