Dr. Carol Chomsky Passes Away

In what must be trying times for the Chomsky family, Dr. Carol Chomsky died of cancer yesterday at the age of 78. She was married to life-long partner Noam Chomsky since 1949 – almost sixty years. As Carol recounted in the film documentary “Rebel Without a Pause,” she and Noam knew each other for a longer than that and “met” very early on in life:

Dr. Carol Chomsky, who like her husband was a linguist, but specialized in early childhood language acquisition, is survived by Noam, her two daughters, Aviva and Diane, a son, Harry, a brother, J. Leonard Schatz, three grandsons and two granddaughters. Thoughts and condolences go out to the Chomsky family.
