Today is Professor Barzun’s 98th birthday.
Today is the birthday of another friend and inspiration, one who is revered around the world as a writer and historian. His reputation as one of the great minds was cemented when, late in life, he chose to make San Antonio his home. A very happy 98th birthday to Jacques Barzun.
