A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway

Faculty Hosts:

In Memory of Scott Donaldson

The Ernest Hemingway Society is deeply saddened by the death of its former president, Scott Donaldson, who passed away at his home in Scottsdale, Arizona, aged 92, on December 1, 2020.  A great biographer, critic, and scholar of American literature, Scott was a dear friend to many of us—loved for his brilliance, good humor, wisdom, and kindness.  Author of twenty-one books and more than a hundred articles and essays, Scott was a great teacher and a generous mentor to generations of young Hemingway scholars.  He will be deeply missed.
