Subject: Death of Joseph V. Ridgely

I regret to announce the death of Joseph V. Ridgely, at Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, MD. He had long lived in Roland Park, in Baltimore, but moved to Aspenwood Senior Living in Silver Spring in 2010. In 1997, he co-edited, with Burton R. Pollin, the volume of The Collected Writings of Edgar Allan Poe devoted to the non-fictional prose in the Southern Literary Messenger. He taught at Columbia University, commuting from and back to Baltimore by train, until his retirement in 1989. He was 93. (He was predeceased by his wife, who passed in 1986.)
