Longtime writer for the Harvard News Office Ken Gewertz died on Sept. 7 at his home in Watertown, Mass. He was 63.
Gewertz gave 22 years of service to the University. As a reporter for the Harvard University Gazette, he covered almost every aspect of life at Harvard, but he concentrated on the arts and humanities. Elegant prose and quiet erudition distinguished his work. Gentleness and kindness distinguished his life. A memorial service at Harvard is being planned.
