[Memento Mori]

Edwin Dobb (1950–2019)


Remembering Edwin Dobb

We at Harper’s Magazine are deeply saddened by the untimely death of our former contributing editor Edwin Dobb. He wrote many essays for the magazine, including “Pennies from Hell” (October 1996), about the results of copper mining in his home town of Butte, Montana, and, most recently, a personal essay, “Nothing But Gifts,” which appeared in the October 2018 issue. He will be missed.
