Jacques Barzun, Cultural Historian

Jacques Barzun, one of the the 20th century's most important historians, has died at age 104. He was a cultural historian, which means he didn't spend much time in archives; still, his passing is worth the mention even on this blog of an archives. The New York Times has a fine obituary; I posted a few thoughts of my own over here.
