Since becoming director of the Carolina Center for Jewish Studies, I have greatly enjoyed meeting our extensive network of alumni and community members. But one meeting that really stands out for me is the afternoon I spent, in October 2018, with Seymour, ’48, and Carol Levin. I had just been named the founding Seymour and Carol Levin Distinguished Professor, and I wanted to meet them and personally thank them for their support of me, and in truth, of all our faculty and students. Seymour was one of the windows into Carolina’s past and I enjoyed so much hearing from him. I am very sad to hear of the passing of Seymour, as both I and the Center have lost a remarkable friend. In 2010, Seymour spoke about his support of the Center and his love of Carolina.
