     I was saddened to learn of the death of John Lindsay.  I had the

privilege of working for him briefly when he was Mayor of New York and I have been a strong admirer of his since. He was a man of high principle, strong integrity and passionate commitment to his city and country. He was a fine public servant and a very good man.
