A sad day for Tibetan Studies, an opportunity to remember a wonderful colleague

Gene Smith was not only an outstanding scholar who was dedicated to the preservation of Tibetan culture, to many of us he was also a kind and warm-hearted friend who was ever willing to share his vast knowledge of Tibet. The number of times I personally have benefitted from his encyclopedic knowledge of Tibetan literature are too many to count.

The field will not be the same without Gene. All of us — students and professors, scholars and practitioners — will never forget the many contributions he made to the study of Tibet.

We will miss you, dear friend.
