Remembering Henry Hubert

Consummate gentleman, book sales representative, and friend Henry Hubert passed away last Saturday.  I only had one opportunity to meet with Henry before he retired from a career in books that spanned half a century, but even that one meeting was memorable.  Henry introduced me to The Irony of American History by Reinhold Niebuhr, as he introduced numerous buyers to countless gems over the years.  In a previous post I wrote that Henry was retiring from his impressive career due to exorbitant expenses.  That was a saddening loss; this is awful.
