With tremendous sadness, the Center for North American Studies announces the passing of Founding Director Robert A. Pastor. After a long battle with cancer, Dr. Pastor died on January 8, 2013 at his home in Washington, D.C. He has been a tireless advocate for developing a greater sense of community between the countries of North America. As a scholar, professor, colleague, and friend, he will be dearly missed.
