Scholar of Benjamin Franklin's papers dies at 92
Sunday - 12/30/2012, 7:53am EST
NEW HAVEN, Connecticut (AP) - Author and scholar of Benjamin Franklin's papers Claude-Anne Lopez has died at age 92.
Lopez started her studies of Franklin's papers at Yale University with secretarial-type work and rose to a top editor's job. Her son, Larry Lopez, says she had Alzheimer's disease and died Friday at her New Haven home.
Lopez spent years working on The Papers of Benjamin Franklin, a project at the university to collect, edit and publish Franklin's writings. She specialized in the American founding father's private life, and wrote a handful of books about him.
Former Yale colleague Jonathan Dull ranks Lopez as one of the 20th century's great Franklin scholars.
She also helped found a Philadelphia-based network of people interested in Franklin's life.
