William Danforth

Dr. William Danforth recently died at the age of 94. He was born into privilege of the Ralston Purina company but lived a modest live devoted to service to others. His most noted accomplishment was as President of Washington University. He was extremely modest and kind and cared deeply about the students at the university. I had the privilege of meeting him once. He was as kind to me as he was to everyone. He will be missed. Written by Paul Dribin
