Obituary of Former American Assembly President William Sullivan
October 31, 2013
Author(s):

It is with considerable sadness that The American Assembly announces the passing of William H. Sullivan (Oct. 12, 1922—Oct 11, 2013), who served as our President from 1979 to 1986. After a distinguished career as a diplomat and a scholar, Bill brought great prestige to our institution, stabilizing The Assembly’s finances and developing innovative projects. He was held in high esteem by all who had the privilege to work with him, especially The Assembly’s trustees and staff, who extend their condolences to his family. Bill’s obituary ran in the October 28th issue of The New York Times.
