In Memorium

On August 8, we lost Fred Goodman, our dear friend and mentor, just shy of his 85th birthday, after a long illness. In more ways than we can count, he was the foundation of the iiE’s approach and spirit. Whenever an iiE activity or material leads to magic, delight, or inspiration, Fred’s heart and mind are with us. We continue to be inspired by his energy, his generosity, his fearless intellect, and his curiosity about the world. Perhaps most of all, we are inspired by his conviction that everyone, regardless of age, status, or background, has something important to contribute, if we can just create the right opportunities. You lead us still, Fred, though we miss you deeply.
