We are sorry to report that Leonard Liggio (1933-2014) passed away on October 14, 2014. Our friend Leonard was instrumental in launching the Institute for Humane Studies - Europe, which is now the Institute for Economic Studies Europe, and of which he was a board member. His role in the spreading of the liberty movement in Europe has been absolutely crucial, helping to create the network of liberal intellectuals. As a historian, he had the "big picture" - of the civilizing effects of liberty - clearly in mind and also knew the small details of the story of many kings and intellectuals. He was a "walking encyclopedia". Always kind, humble, modest, always smiling and always ready to spend time with students to advise them on readings and authors. The world has lost a hero of liberty.
