Professor Robert Ferguson enriched all of our lives. The man lived by and luxuriated in words. They are important to all of us, but they had a particularly magical significance to Robert. He chose them carefully, crafted their construction, and gloried in their rhythm. He encouraged all of us – his colleagues, students, friends, and (most recently) correspondents from prison – to articulate our thoughts. He listened to and scrutinized the words of others with impeccable care.
