Boston University has suffered a tragic loss in the death of John Daverio. He was a superb scholar and a teacher whose extraordinary quality earned him the Metcalf Award for Excellence in Teaching. He was also a colleague and friend, respected by all who knew him and adored by those who knew him well.

John Daverio’s loss is measured by the magnitude of his talents, virtues and achievements. We cannot compensate for his loss. We must simply accept it and find solace in his writings and in our memories of his many gifts and his talent, not only for music, but for friendship.
