Bill Sonnenschein, educator, civil rights activist, roadie, and friend, died on 29 December 2008.
Bill had been a special advisor to President Marc Ravalomananat of Madagascar for the last few months. He taught leadership at Berkeley, which is where I first met him, and helped to run the Environmental Leadership Program there.
Grethe, who was one of Bill’s graduate student instructors, writes here about the impact that Bill had on her life.

He was an inspiration to many to make the world a better place.
