It is with great sadness that we at MIT announce the death, on Monday,
October 8, of our colleague and friend, Professor Emeritus Ken Hale.

A special set of web pages, entitled "A tribute to Ken Hale"
(http://mit.edu/linguistics/www/ken_hale_tribute.html), were created in
1999 to celebrate Ken, in honor of his retirement and in celebration of his
many decades as a brilliant researcher, inspiring teacher and advisor. We
invite you to read them.

Announcements of forthcoming memorial events will be made in this space
when details are known. A fuller obituary will be sent to this list in the
near future.
