William H. Peterson


We’re sad to report that Freeman contributing editor William H. Peterson died last month at the age of 91. He was a long-time friend of FEE and a student in Ludwig von Mises’s seminar at New York University. Bill contributed many articles and book reviews to The Freeman over the years. His devoted service to the cause of liberty was exemplary, and he will be missed.


  • Sheldon Richman is the former editor of The Freeman and a contributor to The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics. He is the author of Separating School and State: How to Liberate America's Families and thousands of articles.
