February 26, 2013 -- The Atlas Society has created a special fund to honor the memory of Frank W. Bubb, III, who passed away last November, at 65, from Young Onset Alzheimer's Disease. Frank was a lifelong activist for liberty and advocate of Objectivism. He was actively involved in the life of our organization since its founding in 1990, as a donor, advisor, speaker, writer, and member of our Board of Trustees. His untimely demise was a loss—not only, and primarily, to his family—but to all who knew him, who read his trenchant essays, who enjoyed the sunlight of his support and encouragement and the wisdom of his advice. He was a true pillar of our community. (For more about Frank, see our In Memoriam notice.)
