GALLERY: In memory of a friend

Celebrating the work of Lynus Erickson


Parker Peters / Daily Collegian

The Massachusetts Daily Collegian suffered a devastating loss last week with the tragic passing of Lynus Erickson. Lynus was the head photo editor at the Collegian for the 2021-22 year, and he was a friend to many of us. He was a talented photographer and a joy to be around. Lynus was always willing to learn and improve and always had a smile on his face. Those who knew him will remember his kindness, his sense of humor and his passion for his work.

Lynus worked as an assistant editor with the photography team from Fall 2019-Spring 2021, when he was hired as head photo editor. During his time at the Collegian, he covered a wide range of events, from sports to paint nights. The following is a gallery showcasing just some of his work. A collection of his Collegian photos can be found here.

Lynus was a remarkable person, and he will truly be missed by all of us at the Collegian. We offer our sincerest condolences to his family.
