Linguist George L. Campbell Dies

He knew more than 60 languages, 44 of which he spoke fluently. I remember seeing a b/w picture of him once; he was surrounded by what looked like dusty stacks of books and papers, the chaotic tools of his trade. Campbell lived to be 92. I'm in awe of what he did with his life.
