Tribute: Anyone who ever set foot in the Boston College Law School Library likely knew Michael Mitsukawa, a gentle and effective presence there for thirty-five years. He was a vital facilitator during the new building’s construction in the mid-1990s and later ran the Administrative and Technology Resources (ATR) department. Beloved for gestures of thoughtfulness that a friend called his “Michael moments,” Mitsukawa characteristically wrote a farewell thank you letter to the community in February when he departed for Hawaii to be with family during the brief, final chapter of his life. He died there of cancer on April 29.
