Dear Colleagues,

Jerry's death is indeed a great loss to our discipline.  His first 
degree was in Sanskrit at Oxford.  I too met him in Pune (in 1969) and 
subsequently co-operated with him on some textual aspects of the 
mounting of the Mewar Rāmāyaṇa on the web.  He was always a friendly and 
helpful colleague.
