Edward Lev, beloved husband of MoJ friend Mary Ann Glendon of Harvard Law School, died unexpectedly this weekend after being hospitalized for what was thought to be a non-life threatening infection. He was 86 years old. Deepest condolences to Mary Ann and their daughters and grandchildren.

When he was 16 years old, Ed tried to sign up to fight in World War II. Later, he became a marine and fought in Korea.  He then went to law school and on to a distinguished career as a labor lawyer and litigator with the firm of Sullivan and Worcester in Boston. In retirement, he often did legal work for good causes and also pursued an intellectual interest—-one which he and I share and enjoyed discussing—-in Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War.

He was a fine man in every way.

Requiescat in pace.
