CNES mourns the loss of our colleague Sheila McNally, Professor Emerita of Art History, who passed away on September 24 at the age of 81. Professor McNally was a member of CNES from 1987 until 2004 (before and after those years she was in the department of art history) and was closely linked to our programs throughout her decades at Minnesota. She was a distinguished scholar and dynamic teacher whose research (ranging from the palaces of Roman emperors to the ancient silk trade to Coptic monasteries) took her all over the world. We will miss her presence in our community greatly. Contributions in her honor can be made to theSheila McNally Fellowship Fund (c/o the Department of Art History), which supports graduate students pursuing the Ph.D. in Late Antique art and archaeology.
