Hershel Shanks (1930–2021)

Word began getting out yesterday that Hershel Shanks had passed away. A brief obituary can be read here. I did not know Hershel personally, but he helped feed my interest in biblical archaeology primarily through the magazine he founded and edited, the Biblical Archaeology Review. I started reading back in the 90s and have a hard copy of every issue except one.
