In Memoriam: David Landes

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research mourns the death of David Landes—a student, early supporter, and eventual BISR board member. David began his relationship with BISR in a 2014 Kant course. Over the next five years, he continued to learn with us in classes even as he simultaneously contributed his time and expertise to BISR as a board member, helping us transition into the organization we are today. BISR is fortunate to have been part of David’s legacy of kindness and generosity. He was a trusted adviser, an unmatched intellectual interlocutor, and a friend. He’ll be deeply missed.
