Quærendo 8 () 6-8 www.brill.nl/qua © Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden, DOI: ./X Frans F. Blok, 26 September 1913-28 September 2007 Dr Frans F. Blok died at the respectable age of years on September. As the editor responsible for the Department of Seventeenth-Century Human- ism, he was an esteemed member of the Editorial Board of our periodical Quærendo from the very ﬁrst year of its existence until . After a long career as a classics teacher at several Dutch grammar schools, in Gouda, Oostburg, Amersfoort and Doorn and ﬁnally the Huygens Lyceum in Voorburg, Blok was appointed a research fellow at the Instituut voor Neer- landistiek (presently the Department of Dutch Language and Culture studies) of the University of Amsterdam in . He joined the staﬀ of Professor Wytze Hellinga, teaching neo-Latin. When Hellinga became director and professor of the newly created Institute of Neophilology and Neo-Latin in , Blok also transferred to that Institute. For many years he worked there as an inspir- ing and exemplary teacher of Neo-Latin, now a moribund discipline, but nev- ertheless so essential for a good grasp, indeed a true understanding, of our learned past.
