As a younger debater traveling in both your wakes , I greatly admired him, and partner Rowland I believe ? One of the alltime greats.

Frank Cross is a major reason I quit sports my sophomore year in high school to join the debate team. My parents are Jayhawks and I would read the alumni magazine and see those photographs of Jayhawk debaters (Cross in particular) and read about their exploits. When I finally had a chance to meet him he was a gracious, giving individual. What a loss.

I’m so sorry to hear this news but seeing Frank’s name did bring a smile to my face. What a genuinely good man. Thanks, John, for sharing.

I crossed paths again with Frank when he welcomed me into the academy -- well, "welcomed" in that brilliant, vaguely acerbic, but ultimately warm way he had. He contributed oodles to the law as well as to debate, and notwithstanding serious health challenges. He'll be sorely missed.

This is terribly sad news indeed. My condolences to his family and friends. Frank was one of my favorite judges in college, witty and absolutely brilliant. When I ran Malthus in high school I was modeling it on his NDT final round. One of the all time greats. RIP.

So sorry to hear this, John. Thanks for letting us know. I have such fond memories of that time and of Frank. A really good guy.

I just heard the terribly sad news that Frank Cross, A.B. Kansas '77, J.D. Harvard '80, 1976 NDT champion, and long-time professor at the University of Texas, passed away early this morning. Frank was warm, funny, giving, and brilliant. I cherish the three years we overlapped in Cambridge and the one year he worked with our team, before moving to work with the wonderful folks at Dartmouth. Illness struck Frank early in life, and his perseverance has always been an inspiration. I am left, as are many of us, with a plethora of stories about Frank, which will help us through his departure. I am thankful to have known him.
