The staff of Harvard Magazine mourns the loss of Laura Levis, who contributed significantly to our efforts to serve readers online and through social media, while also writing articles on a broad range of subjects. We were privileged to work with her from 2011 through this past spring, when she moved to the University’s public affairs office. The death of a young colleague, following a sudden, severe asthma attack, is particularly painful. We extend our heartfelt condolences to her husband, parents, and entire extended family.
