Stephen joined Distributed Proofreaders on 13 July 2004. In his time at DP he proofread and formatted a massive 75,015 pages. He was also an extremely active Project Manager -- so far 978 of his projects are now at Project Gutenberg, with many more to come as they move through the rounds and Post-Processing. As a Post-Processor, Stephen posted 1,076 projects to Project Gutenberg, many of them projects he had project managed. One of his projects, French Painting of the 19th Century in the National Gallery of Art was selected as Distributed Proofreaders' 37,000 unique title posted to Project Gutenberg.
Stephen was active at Distributed Proofreaders to the end, answering questions from volunteers in the forums and posting three Post-Processing projects to Project Gutenberg on the day before his death.
Stephen will be deeply missed at Distributed Proofreaders!
