Who will be Morgenbesser's Plato?

A brief NY Times Magazine appreciation of Sidney Morgenbesser, longtime philosophy professor at Columbia, who died in August. He wrote very little. Yet Robert Nozick said he "majored in Sidney Morgenbesser" as an undergraduate. Socrates lives on largely due to the writings of Plato...will Morgenbesser live on as the "sidewalk Socrates" as he is called in this article unless more is written about him?

Thanks to Mark Packer for this link, and to Rita Rud for the question in the post's title.
