I had the honor to work under the supervision of the late Gene Smith at Library of Congress Office in Cairo, Egypt, in the mid nineties. What a nice, gentleman and scholar he is! It is a great loss for a scholar, a reflection of an elevated person who, by all means, cannot not easily forgotten. All his friends and I, share with Gene’s family, friends and colleagues a deep aching sense of loss, and condolences.
