Leon Trilling Obituary
Devoted and beloved husband of the late Edna (Yuval), father to sons Roger and Alex and daughter-in- law of Marlene, passed on April 20, aged 93. Born in Poland and raised in France, Leon came to the US in 1940. He earned a Ph.D. at Caltech, was a Fulbright scholar, and began teaching at MIT in 1951. Though he retired as an active member of the faculty after 43 years, he continued teaching at MIT for an additional 23 years. He also worked tirelessly to better the educational opportunities for young people, especially of color. He was a co-founder of METCO and a member of the Brookline School Committee. In lieu of flowers, the family requests a donation to the following website: aclu.org/memorial.
