I still remember the morning I woke up in Hanoi to learn that I had been accepted to Michigan to pursue my MA. The email came from John. I was floored. His kindness and wealth of knowledge was so important to me while in Ann Arbor. He will be forever missed.

Thank you, Prof. Whitmore!

You were so generous in responding to my numerous inquiries about the Vietnam Union Catalog Project while I was writing my Cornell thesis. You inspired me to read Hong Duc Quoc Am Thi Tap and other works related to Emperor Le Thanh Tong.

May your intellectual legacy in premodern Vietnamese studies continue to thrive in the years to come.

May you rest in peace…
