USA Africa Dialogue Series - Re: Yoruba Affairs - Obituary: Jan Vansina

What a chiiling piece of news. We mourn the loss of one of the greatest of them all!!  A great friend has departed. I spoke to him just a few days before traveling out and the country and he told me in clear terms that the progmosis was not promising, a fact that prompted me to warn Professor Falola of the impending news. Oh well, death is a necessary end that will come when it will come, as well said by Shakespeare. 

Attached here is an essay I wrote about him and three other non-African Africanists some three years ago. Please take note of the last person, Jan Vansina. 

My geatest condolences to the entire Vansina and the Africanist familes.
