Caldwell Titcomb, the president of the Boston Theater Critics Association, died last night of leukemia at age 84.

Though he was ailing, Titcomb still made it to the Elliot Norton Awards ceremony on May 23, where he presented the Norton Prize for Sustained Excellence to director Scott Edmiston.

Known for his kind, gentlemanly demeanor, Titcomb wrote for New England Entertainment Digest, the Bay State Banner, TheArtsFuse.com, Playbill On-Line, and Total Theater.com. He also penned 50 articles for the two-volume Oxford Encyclopedia of Theatre & Performance.

He was an emeritus professor at Brandeis University, where he taught drama criticism.
