Statement by President and Secretary Clinton on the Passing of Sheldon Hackney

Statement

Hillary and I were saddened by the passing of Sheldon Hackney. He was a brilliant writer, scholar, educator, historian, and an outstanding chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities during my administration. But we will remember him most of all as a good man who adored his family and cherished his friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with Lucy and his entire family.
