COWETT--Wilbur, Harvard Hillel mourns the passing of Wilbur Cowett, a steadfast supporter of Jewish life and its flourishing at Harvard University. An inspirational figure to those who knew and worked with him, Wilbur's belief in the future of the Jewish people and in the contributions of future generations of Harvard graduates to that future will continue to inspire and animate our work at Harvard Hillel, even as we miss him. Our Board of Directors, with David Keidan, and our professional staff extend sincere condolences to Wilbur's wife, Peggy; his children, Anne, Frederick, and daughter-in-law Diana Riesman, his grandchildren, and the entire family.
