In memory of Michael Katz

On August 23, Michael Katz, professor at the University of Pennsylvania and member of our Board of Directors for six years, passed away after a long battle with cancer. He worked til the end, publishing multiple books in his last years and being inducted to the American Philosophical Society in 2013.
