Louis Steinberg, born 1953, passed away on Thursday, November 29, 2007.
Most recently a resident of Austin, Mr. Steinberg was a versatile and multi-talented
man who recently completed his first novel, Jihad: The Siege of Vienna.
Fascinated by geo-politics and economics, he was also a humorist, and his
wit and quick sense of humor permeated his writing and his conversation.
A former editor of the Economist Newsletter and a text editor for Standard
& Poor's in New York City, Blake was a native of San Antonio where he
attended Alamo Heights schools, was confirmed at Temple Beth-El, received
his Bachelor's degree at the University of Texas at Austin and his Master's
from Boston University.
He is survived by his parents, Malcolm and Elizabeth Steinberg, his siblings
Malcolm, Carolyn and Jonathan, his cousin Cynthia Cannon, and many other
close members of the family. He will be sorely missed.

was thinking the other day that I knew personally way too many people
that died early. Blake Steinberg was a good fried at AHHS and we
drove together to Big
Bend for a geology class outing in his little MG . That was not the
way to go on that loooong drive. I also knew guys in the upper AHHS classes
that have passed. I guess I could have been one of them by now so I feel
fortunate in that way. ~ Brad Miller, January 2011
