Passing of Edward van Aelstyn, by Alan Contreras

I note the passing of Edward van Aelstyn of Newport. I’m not sure that is mentioned anywhere else on OPA. He died May 23, 2018. He was the editor of Northwest Review at the UO when it was shut down over complaints about the content of poetry by Philip Whalen and others in 1964. He then started the famous Coyote’s Journal, which published Whalen, Gary Snyder and others.
