It was with sadness that we learned of Leonard Silverstein's death on February 14th. As the founder, former president, and member of the Board of the French-American Cultural Foundation, Leonard's life-long love of France and French culture was shared with the Washington community through the organization's educational and cultural activities. His vision, energy, and generosity over the years strengthened the ties between our two countries immeasurably. His elegance, humor, and kindness will not be forgotten, and we shall continue to build on his work and honor his remarkable legacy.
