To the editor:
The editorial “Fond farewell” on Jim Seaver (Dec. 30) was excellent. Those of us who knew his operatic activities well had experiences other than “Opera is My Hobby.” Jim was a key person in the Lawrence Opera Guild and regularly gave programs of music and commentary. For the KU retirees he presented operas on video and on Saturday afternoons provided librettos for a group listening to the Met radio broadcast. Always there were his extensive knowledge and an ability to explain things so well. His presence and his voice are missed.
