John Herd Thompson 1946-2019

It is with great sadness that ACSUS notes the passing of one of its great champions.  Retired Duke University historian John Herd Thompson lost his battle with lung cancer on July 13th at the age of 72. 

In addition to being a leading scholar in Canadian history, Professor Thompson was a tremendous supporter of ACSUS.  We will all miss him and his contributions greatly.

His obituaries from the Toronto Globe and Mail and from Duke Today can be found in the attachment below.
