Like millions around the world, we here at Krasker Film/Video Services are shocked and saddened at the untimely death of comic genius and accomplished dramatic actor Robin Williams. Williams was a good friend to Boston University and we are honored at BU to house many artifacts from his professional career in the Gotlieb Archive’s Robin Williams Collection.
