New York times, 22 Sept. 2022: in an obituary on page B11 (Saul Aaron Kripke, born Nov. 13, 1940 in Bay Shore, N.Y., died Sept. 15 [2022] in Plainsboro, N.J., aged 81; a math prodigy and pioneering logician whose revolutionary theories on language qualified him as one of the 20th century's greatest philosophers; [Kripke's] term "rigid designator" defines the type of linguistic expression that refers to the same thing in all possible worlds -- words like 'Einstein', 'Charles III', and 'water'; taught at Rockefeller University in New York City, Princeton, and then the City University [of New York]; in 2007, City University established the Saul Kripke Center at the Graduate Center to archive, study and publish his works, as much as 70% of which remain unpublished)
