R.I.P. Frank McCourt

In a press release Monday, NYU marked the passing of one of the university's great alums: teacher and author Frank McCourt (NYU School of Education Class of 1957). McCourt died Sunday at the age of 78.

The release included this interesting video with some great old images of NYU and the Village:

An aside: When I read McCourt's second book "'Tis", I was tickled by his passing reference to the NYU Newman Club.
