Ihor Ševčenko
10 February 1922 – 26 December 2009
After a short battle with cancer, Professor Ihor Ševčenko passed away peacefully on December 26, 2009, at home, surrounded by his beloved books.  He remained active until the last day of his life, receiving visitors and telephone calls from friends and colleagues all over the world.
Professor Ševčenko's family has created this website to give the many people who knew and admired him a place to share remembrances and to keep abreast of memorial service arrangements.  We invite you to post remembrances to the guest book in any language.

Memorial Service: 26 February 2010
A memorial service at Harvard University's Memorial Church is planned for February 26, 2010, at 3pm.
Ihor Ševčenko was buried in a private ceremony at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  If you wish to visit the gravesite, ask at the front office for the location of the grave of Maria Szewczenko (his mother, whose plot he shares).  The stone currently bears her name only and will be changed in the spring.  In lieu of sending flowers, we invite you to contribute to the Ihor Ševčenko Memorial Fund
We thank the people all over the world who have offered support to his family, honored him with words, and held memorial masses for the repose of his soul.
