PAHLAVI--HIH Prince Ali Reza. Armao and Company mourns the sudden loss of our esteemed Vice Chairman and Counselor, His Imperial Highness Prince Ali Reza Pahlavi of Iran. Born in Tehran in 1966, He obtained a B.A. from Princeton University in 1984, a Masters Degree from Columbia in 1992 and attended Harvard University in pursuit of a Ph.D. in Ancient Iranian studies. Prince Ali Reza was an intelligent, sensitive, loyal, fearless and dedicated to His Family and friends. His counsel, wisdom and sense of humor will be profoundly missed and always cherished. Although He left Iran at the time of the Islamic uprising in 1979, His heart and soul were forever with His country and countrymen.
