With great sadness, we write to let you know that Paul R. Sellin (1930-2017) passed away on Sunday Sept. 24. Paul, one of the early champions and leaders of the AANS, was a Distinguished Professor Emeritus in UCLA's Department of English and Oud-hoogleraar at the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. Paul published extensively on northern European Neo-Latin poetic theory; sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Anglo-Dutch Relations; English literature from the age of Shakespeare through Milton, especially John Donne; Dutch literature in the Golden Age; Anglican and Reformed theology; and continental artists, spies, and diplomats from the reign of King James to the Restoration. His most recent book appeared with Routledge in 2011: Treasure, Treason and the Tower: El Dorado and the Murder of Sir Walter Raleigh. Paul received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 1963 where he met and married a fellow graduate student, Ake Weststrate, originally from Amsterdam. Paul, Ake and their daughter, Christine have been familiar faces at ICNS gatherings through the years. He will be missed.
