Memorial for Sanford Fox next Thursday

The University will hold a memorial service Thursday, Oct. 12, for Prof. Sanford Fox (Law), an internationally respected faculty member who died July 1 at age 70.

The service will begin at 4 p.m. in the Law School East Wing 115, with a reception immediately following in Barat House. Reflections presented at the event will be published as part of an upcoming volume of the Boston College Law School International and Comparative Law Review dedicated to Fox's memory.

Labyrinth repainted

The Boston College medieval-style labyrinth, which has become a popular spot for meditation and reflection, has been repainted and is now ready for use. The labyrinth is located on the lawn across Beacon Street from Carney Hall.
When originally installed on the Burns Library lawn in 1998, the labyrinth drew more than 1,000 students, faculty, staff, neighbors and University visitors. It was moved to its present location last fall.

A near duplication of the labyrinth on the floor of the Cathedral of Chartres in France, it consists of 12 rings enclosing a single path that meanders to a center rosette through 28 loops, totaling some 300 yards in length.
