Henry G. Manne, RIP

It is with deep sadness that report the news of the passing of Henry Manne today at the age of 86. I will post my own remembrances on the man and his legacy at a later time–for now though I just want to express my deepest condolences to his family. He has been a larger than life figure–scholar, leader, intellectual entrepreneur, mentor, and father–and he will be missed by many. There are few men, and even fewer academics, who leave a mark on the world as large as Henry Manne.

There will be a memorial service at George Mason Law School on February 13 at 4:00 p.m.

The family has requested that: “In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Law & Economics Center at George Mason Law School — the embodiment of his intellectual legacy.” Amen to that.
