What a shock. I’m so sorry.
Though I never met him, I admired his writing and rigorous research.
RIP, Mr. McRea.

This is very sad. I never personally met Ron, but his contributions to WC and his book on Taliesin made it obvious he had a terrific mind.

He will be missed.

If I remember correctly he was working on a book about Wright and the women who worked with him.

Maybe Mark might be interested in completing that book.

I met him once. I read his book far more than once.
A true gentleman and scholar.

I acquired my copy of "Building Taliesin" only this year; that makes me a latecomer to McCrea-dom. Goodbye, Ron, and thank you . . .

I met Ron here in Florence, Italy, in 2004 while he was researching for his book. Since then we have had a great exchange of information and materials about Wright. He was realy a gentleman and serious scholar.
I'll miss him. R.I.P. Ron and thanks.
