full obituary is in today's New York Times. I also found the earlier one in the Santa Cruz paper to be worth reading. We've got one interesting piece of his on the wall in the poetry/fine press room, plus a copy of the 2003 "George Hitchcock Reader," One-Man Boat. Wish we had more.
Also, for those of you interested in writing about the man and his work: His Wikipedia article is criminally brief. How about adding to it?
