R.W. Bradford, RIP

The following message was forwarded from a source I trust (Jeff Riggenbach) to a list I subscribe to earlier this evening:

Dear friends,

I am grieved to tell you that R.W. Bradford, founder of "Liberty," died on Thursday, December 8, at his home in Port Townsend, Washington. He was 58 and had fought heroically against cancer for many months.

Bill was surrounded by friends and family, and by the good wishes of his many friends throughout the world.

An upcoming issue of "Liberty" will feature a commemoration of Bill's life. His work will continue.

Stephen Cox
For "Liberty"
Stephen Cox, professor of English at the University of California at San Diego and longtime editor of both "Liberty" and the "Journal of Ayn Rand Studies," has been named editor-in-chief of "Liberty."

Bill Bradford is a friend whom I'll miss very much. Condolences to his family, friends and the staff of Liberty.
