Alice Stone Ilchman
PBS and its member stations mourn the passing of Alice Stone Ilchman, a member of the PBS Board of Directors and our dear friend. Alice's public spirit and devotion to education made her an invaluable member of the board, which she joined in 2000 as a representative of WNET in New York. Alice made a key contribution to the board as the chair of the compensation committee and as a long-time member of the education committee, including a term as its vice chair. Last year, she played a special role as the co-chair of the search committee for the selection of the PBS president. We will miss her wisdom, grace and commitment to civil society. We extend our deep condolences to Alice's husband, Warren, and their children, Frederick and Sarah, and to her relatives, friends and many admirers.
Mary G.F. Bitterman
Chairman of the Board

President and Chief Executive Officer
