John Lewis, professor of economics and international affairs emeritus and former dean of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, passed away on May 19, 2010.
Prof Lewis was a soft spoken, gentle man with a love for India which during my years at Princeton and the WWS was rare to find. Not surprisingly then he was my top choice for Thesis adviser and I remain ever so grateful for his kindness, guidance and tolerance for my capricious ways. I just dug out the very kind words he wrote (by hand) on my Senior Department Evaluation Sheet after my thesis defense. RIP Prof Lewis.
