John Deely died January 7, 2017. Past President Raymond Dennehy writes:
“John was a founder and dedicated member of the American Maritain Association. What stands out in my mind from when we first met — at the meeting in which the Maritain Association was formed — was John’s brilliant mind. As time passed, it became increasingly clear that his brilliance embraced both a masterful ability as a translator of Latin and a luminous understanding of Thomas Aquinas and Jacques Maritain as well the discipline of Semiotics. His books testify to his estimable scholarly and philosophical ability. His dedication and personal authenticity will be missed.”
