For many years Robert (Bob) D’Atillio was an inexhaustible source of material on the Sacco and Vanzetti case. His loss is a tremendous one to those of us interested in the nuances of anarchist history. Mentored by Raffaele Schiavina (Max Sartin) he devoted much of his life to the search for undiscovered material on the case. He helped us on numerous occasions with patience and humour and he is a great loss to the movement as this beautiful obituary by Luigi Botta shows. A final thought. Perhaps there are people near you who were involved in the movement. Talk to them. Get their memories in writing or on tape. We can’t afford to lose them. Vale, Bob D’Attilio.
