History of Cartography Project Co-Founder Dies

Last December, I reported on the massive History of Cartography Project, an expensive, comprehensive multivolume series, the first volume of which came out in 1987. The project was founded by J. B. Harley and David Woodward. Harley died in 1991. Now, according to Doug Moe, writing for the Madison, Wisconsin Capital Times, Woodward himself died last month at the age of 61. The project’s managing editor says the six-volume series will be completed; volume three is due out in 2005.
