Sam Baron

Reading your article on Sam Baron brought back memories of my mother Charlotte Pursell, wife of Lyle Pursell, professor of mathematics 1955–1965. My mother was the typist for Professor Baron’s book Plekhanov: The Father of Russian Marxism. She bought an electric typewriter to prepare his manuscript for publication. I remember her spending many hours deciphering his handwritten pages.
