Remembering David Goldstein (1933-1987)
WITH the death of David Goldstein on 26 July 1987 the British Library lost one of its ablest and most productive curators. Nearly two years later this loss is still acutely felt by all his colleagues in the Hebrew Section, and in Oriental Collections, the department he had joined some twelve years earlier. The following is an attempt to record, briefly, his career, life, interests and achievements (both inside and outside the Library), to pay tribute to the inspiration he gave to all who worked with him and, sadly, to record the many unfulfilled promises and incomplete tasks left by his untimely death.
