It is with great sadness that the Center for the Study of Global Change announces that our long-time Senior Research Associate, Dr. David Albright, died at his home on Tuesday, August 17th.

David contributed in many significant ways to the success of the Center's mission, through his teaching, organizing imaginative and timely conferences, and in arranging numerous, distinguished visiting scholars to contribute to the intellectual life of Indiana University.

A recognized expert on international security issues, David was the author or editor of nearly a dozen books and more than three dozen scholarly articles.

His good counsel, experience, and expertise were widely recognized and will be missed. The Center has lost a good friend and dedicated colleague. We extend our deep sympathy to his wife Ruth and family.
