Malcolm Quantrill, 1931-2009

Texas A&M University Press mourns the loss of Malcolm William Quantrill, long-time editor of the Center for the Advancement of Studies in Architecture (CASA) book series, Studies in Architecture and Culture.

As series editor, Malcolm shepherded six projects through the vigorous peer review and publishing process at Texas A&M Press. His latest project, an edited volume focusing on Chilean modern architecture, will see print in the Spring, 2010 season.

See more on this series of unique architectural studies, which primarily focus on Latin America, here.

Malcolm was also distinguished professor emeritus in the architecture department of Texas A&M University.

See the following excerpt from his obituary that appeared in the Bryan-College Station Eagle today:

"Malcolm had a passion for living and enjoyed a rich and varied life. . . An enormously sociable man, he had a gift for friendship, nurturing many bonds over decades, often from a great distance. His sparkling wit and wicked sense of humor made him a brilliant conversationalist, and he entertained all those he encountered with a seemingly endless fund of jokes and stories."

The Architectural Project (Texas A&M University Press, 2003), the sixth book in the CASA series.
