Posted By Administration, Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Morimichi Watanabe, president emeritus of the American Cusanus Society, passed away peacefully in his sleep on April 1, 2012 at his home in Port Washington, New York. He is survived by his wife, Dr. Kiyomi Watanabe, M.D.; his son, Tsugumichi D. Watanabe of New York City; and a granddaughter, Izumi Watanabe.

He was a retired Professor of History and Political Science from the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University. He served as President of the American Cusanus Society from 1983-2008 and was also editor of the American Cusanus Society Newsletter from its debut in 1984 to the present. His research on the historical context of the life and political thought of Nicholas of Cusa (1401-64) set the standard for all work done in this field in the English language. Professor Watanabe was a RSA member since 1962.
