The foundation notes, with sadness, the death of Adam Medill Albright, 77, the longtime treasurer and trustee of the Alicia Patterson Foundation. His years of service to the foundation named for his aunt, Alicia Patterson, were a gift to its effective operation. Adam was a stalwart supporter of a free press, clean government, and most crucially, a healthy environment. He was a decades-long board member of the Natural Resources Defense Council and a supporter of the Rocky Mountain Institute and the Rainforest Alliance, among others. He and his wife, Rachel, supported important journalism, environmental protection, and justice initiatives through their ARIA foundation, which they set up three decades ago. An enthusiastic outdoorsman, Adam was a trekker, hiker, skier and world traveler. He is survived by his wife, beloved children Mika, Reed and Garrett and four treasured grandchildren. His contributions to truth and protecting the world’s environment are a lasting legacy.
