Back Remembering Christopher Carduff:1956–2023
Christopher Carduff

Library of America is profoundly saddened by news of the death of Christopher Carduff, a passionate, meticulous, deeply knowledgeable, and brilliantly creative editor who left an unparalleled legacy here.

Contributing Editor from 2006 to 2017 before joining the Wall Street Journal as Books Editor, Chris was devoted to American literature and to Library of America, and he conceived, edited, and championed many of its signature volumes, as the slides below show. We are grateful to him and honor him and will miss him more than we can say.

Ave atque vale.
