Memories of Dave Golub -Prof Cohen

David offered his active, engaged and sometimes over-the-top intelligence to my freshman studies class this fall. His barely contained enthusiasm, his willingness to risk his opinions, his capacity to take criticism and learn from it made him the kind of student I most treasure. By the term’s end, he’d become something of a Plato freak and, to a lesser degree, a champion of Einstein. He came to see me periodically thereafter and I always enjoyed talking to him. He seemed to yearn for intellectual engagement and discipline, both of which I was glad to offer. I viewed David as a very promising student with a potentially glorious future. In short, I was stunned to hear of his death and only wish that he’d come to see me one more time.
Yours sincerely,Paul Cohen
