I don't know that anyone here on Screen-L has noted the passing of William
K. Everson last year.  There's a touching memorial piece by Kevin Browlow
in the current (Jan-Feb '97) FILM COMMENT.
I suspect that many of us have Everson stories.  He came to Brown
University a few times while I was an undergraduate there.  His visits were
always occasions of terrific movie marathons--including fabulously rare
films.  His personal collection was legendary and his knowledge of film
history encyclopedic.
The film community is impoverished by his passing.
