Edward Lewis passed away in the 1980s. I think he died of leukemia. I last saw him in London. He was doing a semester at LSE or maybe UCL (I was working as a community service volunteer). We got separated at Hyde Park after a nice day, and that was the last I saw him. I don't know much about what he was up to post-NTW, but his friends called him by his nickname, Moon (after the drummer? maybe a prank?) I remember two wonderful things about him: his corner shot (basketball) and his love of Motown while most of our classmates, including me, were into a [less] shader (pale) of rock. He was encyclopedic and passionate about this in High School, and I think it affected his politics. I recall that he was socially active—what one would now describe as "woke"—when we met in London. Perhaps he's lucky to miss the current state affairs in the USA, but I will miss him at our 40th.
