It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our friend and fellow editor, Will Moore. PV@Glance asked Will to join the blog as an editor several years ago. We asked him because of his scholarly reputation, because he was our friend, and because no one else out in cyberspace helped us as much as he did. He was an incredibly positive voice in every element of PV@Glance. He wrote thoughtful comments on submitted posts. He emailed creative ideas on how to make the blog even better. He actively solicited posts and contributions from voices not always represented in the mainstream blogosphere. He wrote his own powerful posts. He did it because he loved the study of political violence, he loved to educate, he loved to produce, and because he was an unbelievably generous soul. The team at PV@Glance will miss Will’s consistent and creative presence, his deep and kind voice, the energy and passion he brought to everything he did, his friendship, his intellect, his big laugh, and his open heart.

Thank you for this. Will was wonderful.
I met Will when I first started presenting research at conferences, and he was always willing to read my papers and offer suggestions and encouragement. This is a true loss to our profession, and I extend my sympathies in particular to his close friends and family members.
So young. How incredibly sad. May Will’s name be for a blessing.
Will responded to several of my emails regarding Windham Historical Society and our ongoing research in the earliest settlement of Windham on the River Road which included his ancestral home. Although I never met him I appreciated his subtle sense of humor and his cheerleading support of our trials. Our sincere sympathy to his large family at this sad time. Linda Griffin, Vice President of Windham Historical Society
