Caldwell Titcomb, a familiar presence at many ATCA meetings for decades who had a long career at Brandeis and elsewhere in the Boston area as a critic, composer and professor of criticism and music, died June 13 of complications from leukemia and pneumonia. He was 84. One of the founders of the Boston Theater Critics Association and its Eliot Norton Awards, he was its president when he died. An indefatigible and knowing historian of theater, he annually helped prepare the ballot for the Theater Hall of Fame. Click here for the Boston Globe obituary.
