We are deeply saddened by the passing of Carl E. Schorske, who died on Sunday, September 13, in East Windsor, New Jersey. He was 100. Schorske was an American cultural historian and professor emeritus at Princeton University. In 1981 he won the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction for Fin-de-Siècle Vienna: Politics and Culture, a collection of essays exploring the structure and meaning of turn-of-the-century Viennese intellectual history. Schorske was among the first class of recipients of the MacArthur fellowships and was made an honorary citizen of Vienna in 2012. His full obituary can be read here.
