Richard Solomon, the 3rd president of the U.S. Institute of Peace, passed away on March 13. I was privileged to work at USIP during his tenure. He was a personable leader and enthusiastic supporter of peacebuilding education efforts. I fondly remember getting notes and getting comments from him supportive of my work. He was particularly proud of the Peace Essay Contest at USIP. Dick Solomon had a long and impactful career in promoting international diplomacy and peace. Read USIP’s press release on Solomon.
