JEFF COOPER HAS DIED. Johnathan Pearce remembers him.

I recommend his many writings, particularly Principles of Personal Defense and his memoir, To Ride, Shoot Straight, and Speak the Truth. My favorite bit in the latter was his reminscence of travel by ocean liner in the 1930s, which sounded pretty nice.

UPDATE: Here’s a lengthier tribute by Marc “Armed Liberal” Danziger.
