With great sadness, CSIS mourns the passing of Dr. Harold Brown. Harold had been a member of the CSIS Board of Trustees since 1992. He was an active trustee and participated in countless ways, contributing always his constructive attitude and penetrating analytic insights. As Secretary of Defense, Harold had a unique perspective on security matters, which continued to the very end. Proudly, his legacy will continue at CSIS through the work of the Harold Brown Chair and the work of Dr. Seth Jones who was recruited to this position by Dr. Brown. CSIS joins the Brown family in remembering this remarkable patriot, scholar and leader.
