Very sad news from the puzzle community this week, as we've lost a great friend. Doug Heller was a mainstay at the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament through its entire history. Doug's contributions to the event cannot be underestimated; hundreds of attendees are in his debt. Even at his last tournament this past March, he could be found enjoying the company of his puzzler family with a smile on his face. He will be sorely missed.
If you wish to make a donation in Doug's name, he requested that it be to ushistory.org. Rest in peace, friend.
