A poignant moving eulogy titled "Hans Stefan Santesson: 1914:-1975". In part: "He's gone, he died alone, and words need to be said about him, because he was a solitary man, in many ways a sad man and he was more important to all of us than many of you know" and ."because he was a fine and intelligent and caring man to whom many of us owe large pieces of our careers. You would have liked him. I know you would have liked him. And if you were a young writer, hungry to make it and broke as only one can be in New York.you could always go to Hans and he'd hand you a stat of a cover and he'd say, 'Can you give me about five thousand words around this painting for a week from today?'"
