In Memoriam: Hector Mario Cavallari

Hector Mario Cavallari

We are saddened to announce that long-time PAMLA member, Mills College Professor of Spanish and co-chair of the Spanish program, and former PAMLA President, Hector Mario Cavallari, died on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2016. Cavallari was a kind and generous friend to many at PAMLA and at Mills College. He came to Mills in the fall of 1986, where he quickly developed a reputation as a caring, unwaveringly committed scholar. He published in Pacific Coast Philology, but widely elsewhere too, and always with care, thoughtfulness, and a love of language.
