Campbell McConnell

Summary:
With sadness, I note the passing of economist Campbell McConnell. I never met him, but it is hard not to be impressed. He wrote the first edition his introductory textbook around 1960, and it has been one of the best-sellers ever since. Even today, about 60 years later in its 21st edition, it is the main competitor of my favorite textbook. Here is an old NY Times article about his book, when its main competition was Paul Samuelson's text.
