Robert Clyne has died.

Bob Clyne was a co-founder of The Diogenes Club of Brooklyn, when an undergraduate at Fordham University in 1949, and was invested in the BSI in 1959 as "The Opal Tiara." His hometown newspaper obituary is here.  Bob was eighty, and age and poor health had not permitted him to participate in BSI for some time, but his death removes a surviving link to the club as Christopher Morley and Edgar W. Smith knew it, just now as it increasingly becomes something it never was then, a fan club pretending to be an "international literary society."
