Chandler Davis, like all the professors at Toronto at the time, was obliged to turn emeritus when he turned 65. He relinquished the teaching role only over several years, and reluctantly. He still has full-time work, regaling mathematicians with The Mathematical Intelligencer (he has been on its editorial team since 1986), and trying to save the world despite itself through well-intentioned bodies like Science for Peace. He calls himself a Once and Future Science-Fiction Writer: still rapt in the promise and menace of the future, but for many years now responding otherwise than through fiction. "The future is my grandchildren's department." "My legacy is a considerable output of mathematics and a modest output of words and activism. All of which I relished."
