Michael Hogben

So in the midst of the suspension proceedings. Farhad Simyar saying I have arranged a meeting. Please be there.

Meeting with the union person, Michael Hogben. President of the Faculty Association. Late in the day, on the Loyola campus.

Gentle, with a smile. What has happened to you is unjust; the union will act.

Declined. Too shell-shocked to want to escalate anything. Wanting to hide.

He never pushed. If you want our help, I am here.

Seven months later, he was one of the four murdered by Valery Fabrikant.
