Dave Macleod, 1951-2011

Posted: May 26, 2011

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Dave Macleod, co-creator (along with Barbara Olson) of three books in Nightwood Editions' O Canada Crosswords series.

Born of Canadian parents in Princeton, New Jersey, Dave’s awareness of the cultural differences between the two countries began at an early age. He moved to Canada in 1975 to study forestry, and in his spare time he learned to construct crossword puzzles. His puzzles have appeared in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and other newspapers.

We send our sincere condolences to Dave’s family and friends.
