In Memoriam: Ernest S. Frerichs

Ernest S. FrerichsErnest S. Frerichs: We deeply mourned the death of Ernest “ Ernie” S. Frerichs, a past President and long-time Trustee of the Albright Institute, and President of the Dorot Foundation, who passed away in Providence, RI on November 11, 2013. Ernie will be remembered not only for all of the good things he did for so many people, and for the Albright, but especially as an example of how to deal with adversity with dignity and grace.

 

Ernie was one of the Lamed Vav-nicks, that is, according to Jewish tradition, one of the 36 righteous people without whom the world could not exist.

 

May his memory be for a blessing!

 

Albright Trustees, Staff and Fellows
