In Memoriam

John Glanville
Professor Emeritus of Philosophy John Glanville passed away Nov. 20 at the age of 89. He is survived by his wife Carol, son James and daughters Julia and Sarah, son-in-law Kai Lundgren-Williams, grandson Ilari and sister-in-law Alice Broquist. Glanville earned a Ph.D. from the University of Notre Dame, did post-doctoral studies in Toronto and Switzerland and joined SF State in 1967, where he taught ancient and medieval philosophy until his retirement in 2008. Glanville was also an ardent union member and actively participated in the 1968 strike at SF State. A memorial mass was held at the old Mission Dolores on Saturday, Dec. 4 at 11 a.m.

Mary Anne Warren
Professor Emeritus of Philosophy Mary Anne Warren died Aug. 9 at the age of 63. Warren joined SF State as a lecturer in 1974 while finishing her Ph.D. at U.C. Berkeley (granted 1975). She later became a full professor and, upon her retirement in 2005, was named emerita faculty. Although she wrote on a range of subjects, her essays on the abortion debate had the biggest impact: many of those essays are required reading in academic courses, as well as being cited in major publications. A memorial was held at the Nov. 6-7 meeting of the Pacific Society for Women in Philosophy, an organization in which she was a driving force. Warren is survived by her husband Michael Scriven.
