Keywords: F. O. Matthiessen

Abstract

F.O. Matthiessen was a great man-as teacher, as scholar and critic, and as citizen. He was also a socialist-unwaveringly, without any ifs and buts. The combination of qualities made him a unique figure in present-day America. It is fitting that the Left to which he belonged should honor him and that an ever-increasing number of his countrymen should know about him. We hope that this memorial will contribute to these ends.
