Letters: Fondly remembered 

I was saddened to read about Bernard Queenan's death in the May 29 issue of The Journal. “A man of sovereign parts,” he was a regular participant and winner of the British Nemo Competition, which involves identifying very abstruse quotations.

I relied on Ben Queenan whenever I couldn't track down a quote or something else. He never failed to provide the right answers, and that is why his help is acknowledged in three of my books, including the one just completed.
