The population field has lost a great friend, Bill Paddock. He died on February 28 at age 86 in Antigua, Guatemala, where he lived with his wife, Liz. A delegation of three of us from Population Media Center, Kriss Barker, Leopoldo Peralta and I, had a lovely visit over dinner with Bill and Liz at their home last May at the beginning of a trip to Guatemala and Honduras to develop serial drama programs to promote family planning. This trip was undertaken at Bill’s suggestion and with his financial support. He will be greatly missed.
Below is a link to his obituary that appeared in the Washington Post last week.
