To the family of Donald B. Satisky,
I was so very lucky to have had the great fortune to work with Donald at Blackwell's. He helped me learn the business and for that I will always be grateful. He was one of the many unique characters who made Blackwell's such a wonderful company to work for and to do business with.
Donald leaves a lasting legacy in the academic bookselling business. He also leaves an edible mark on all who worked with him. He was a true Blackwellian in every sense.
May he rest in peace along with all the other Blackwellians who have gone before him.
