In Memoriam: Professor Emeritus Janis Langins (1945-2019)

With sadness, I write to note the passing of Janis Langins, Emeritus Professor at the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology at the University of Toronto.

Craig Fraser, a colleague at IHPST, has written a short notice at the IHPST website, and the Toronto Star has an obituary notice with information about visitation and donations.

Janis was a part of the CSTHA community and supervised several young historians of Canadian technology, including myself. He was kind, generous, and will be missed.
