I met Mr. Eagleton in 1979 when I was part of a group visiting Libya from the American Academy in Rome, and he was serving as charge d'affaires in Tripoli. He very graciously hosted a reception for us all, and then put one other professor and myself up in his residence for our last night in the country after the rest of the group had left for Tunisia, hospitality that was above and beyond the call of duty; when we thanked him then, he replied, "You might as well get something for your tax money." Then he gave us crucial advice for retrieving books from the Academy library that had been confiscated by Libyan customs when we entered the country, and negotiating the Tripoli airport, and even had his driver take us to the airport when we left. I have great memories of that trip, but especially of his kind assistance. His family has my greatest sympathy.
