MAZZONE--Andrew B.

The Henry George School of Social Science mourns the loss of Andrew B. Mazzone, president and CEO of its board of directors. Andy, who was born in Massachusetts and resided in New York City, died February 21, 2017. His vision and passion heralded many successes for the school, founded in 1932 to establish economic justice and sustainable prosperity. These achievements included: Smart Talk, a series of wide-ranging video interviews with prominent economists, political scientists and social thinkers; and encouraging the school's free courses in political economy, tax reform and globalization. Andy graduated from Babson College in Massachusetts with a degree in finance. He also earned an advanced degree in economics from the New School and Cambridge University. A decorated Vietnam Veteran, Andy was president of Perkin Elmer Corp., and chief executive of many other corporations. He leaves behind cherished family members and many dedicated friends and colleagues. Memorial contributions may be made in Andy's memory to the Henry George School of Social Science, 5 West 19th St., Suite 2C, New York, New York 10011. A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
