When I worked at the Library of Congress as an employee and a student, I always treasured my time in the Geography and Map Division with Dick Stephenson and his colleagues. For over thirty years, even after Dick retired there was enthusiastic involvement in scholarship and events centered on the history of cartography. Dick and I shared a patter around the fact that we both were born and grew up in Washington, a city that we loved. Speaking of love I so fondly remember his wife Sallie and their two daughters who shared so much with him. I will always remember Richard Stephenson, a scholar and a gentleman.
