DUKE--Anthony Drexel. The Board of Directors, Overseers and staff of the International Rescue Committee are deeply saddened by the loss of our colleague Tony Duke. A distinguished naval officer who became a highly accomplished civic leader, executive and advocate for the education of underserved children and young people, Tony was also a champion of refugees and uprooted people. He played a key role on our board and executive committee from 1974 to 1996 and was notably active in our response to crises involving Vietnamese and Cuban refugees. We extend our heartfelt condolences to his family. International Rescue Committee Sarah O'Hagan and Thomas Schick, Co-Chairs of the Board Glenda Burkhart and Scott Pelley, Co-Chairs, IRC Overseers David Miliband, President
