In Memory

We extend sincerest sympathy to the family and friends of author John Hoerr, who passed away on June 21, 2015 at the age of 84. Hoerr was a freelance journalist for UPI, public television, and The Daily Tribune, and a staff writer specializing in labor issues for Business Week. For the Press, he authored And the Wolf Finally Came: The Decline of the American Steel Industry and Harry, Tom, and Father Rice: Accusation and Betrayal in America's Cold War.

The University of Pittsburgh Press joins the Pittsburgh literary community in mourning the loss of author Hilary Masters, who passed away on June 14 at the age of 87. Honored in 2003 by the American Academy of Arts and Letters with a Lifetime Achievement award, Masters was a prolific writer and beloved teacher. For the Press, he was a judge of the Drue Heinz Literature Prize and author of Shadows on a Wall: Juan O’Gorman and the Mural in Pátzcuaro.
