Dear Mary and family,
I had the pleasure of working for Fred as a junior economist at the Civil Aeronautics Board. I greatly admired his intellect, his humor, and his concern for the people he worked with. Even when disagreeing with a staff recommendation, he did so with a smile.
To this day, when getting into a debate about airline economics or regulatory policy, I will ask myself what would Fred Kahn say.
I am already missing him
