The Duke community suffered a tragic loss when Alex McIlvaine's death was announced Wednesday afternoon. We are still learning details of his passing and will try to relay those details to you in a timely fashion. The Chronicle will also be accepting letters to the editor remembering Alex. Please submit letters to and include your name and affiliation with Duke. All selected letters will appear on The Chronicle's website within 24 hours of submission. The Chronicle will also publish an obituary honoring Alex's memory within a week. Our thoughts are with Alex's family and friends during this difficult time.
