Sine amicitia, vitam esse nullam (Cicero, de Amicitia, 86) Neither the cursus honorum of an academic career nor a simple list of publications can capture the rich texture of a scholar’s life. This is especially true of the Protean figure that was Accordia’s first Director. John B. Wilkins’ interests were so varied, his intellect so formidable, and his influence on subsequent generations of scholars so profound that I cannot hope to do him justice in a few short pages.
