Father Robert Palladino passed away on February 26, 2016. It may be that, as he feared, Fr. Robert will be remembered only as the person with whom Steve Jobs studied calligraphy after he dropped out of Reed College. To me, he will be remembered as the person who filled Lloyd Reynolds' very large shoes when Reynolds retired from the Reed faculty. Fr. Palladino came to Reed after I had graduated, and I did not meet him until 2011. I am sorry I didn't know him better. Later, I will be uploading some of Palladino's instructional materials, in his beautiful italic calligraphy, to FPN, but, for now, I will provide some links to online materials that will give those interested an introduction to a significant person in the history of American calligraphic arts.
