I've asked my daughter to let LV know, I'd hate to think if I were still active then that people had to worry about when to take over anything I was working on to finish it.

Yes. We could put Librivox on our list of People to be Informed too.

I agree. LV is on my list to be informed of my death. I feel especially close to and grateful to my dpl's who've listened to my reading for literally years on end.
Peace be with you,

So sad to see how many people we have lost since I've been gone from the site! I worked with many of these fine folks and will miss them. But it is comforting to know that their legacy lives on with their voices captured here in audio format.

Oh, no! So sad to hear this. He was a magnificent reader and a very kind gentleman.

I have added a line about Nicholas to the first post in this thread. Lovely photo on that obituary!

Nicholas read 24 novels of Henry James, out of his own 56 solos; and out of the 59 novels by James we have in our catalog.

Oh my gosh! I have seen Dr. Clifford in person! I did the Middlebury summer language program in Japanese in the summer of 1993. He had either just stepped down or was stepping down after that year but he did remarks at the opening welcoming ceremony for the Chinese and Japanese language scholars. I only saw him that one time but he was very warm and gracious.

I didn't remember his name but noticed that his photo looked vaguely familiar when I went to the obituary and then I read it and realized why. I had no idea that he recorded here, but will make a point to check out some of his work.

I'm very sorry to hear of his passing.

It’s so very sad to learn of Nicholas Clifford's death. He was the first narrator I listened to on LibriVox and his flawless performance was an inspiration. Professor Clifford has left a huge void. May God in His Mercy bring peace to Mr. Clifford's family and friends. He is missed.
