Leonard Roy Frank died unexpectedly in his home on January 15. He was a human rights activist, writer, aphorist, and editor. He collected quotations for most of his life and published a number of "Quotationaries" (a term he coined). Leonard also lectured widely on his experiences with insulin coma and electroshock treatments and was a leader in the psychiatric survivor's movement.
Leonard's books include: "Random House Webster's Quotationary"; "Freedom: Quotes and Passages from the World's Greatest Freethinkers"; and "The Greatest Things Ever Said" series ("Wit", "Money", "Inspiration", "Wisdom", "Love").
He remains an inspiration to many and will be greatly missed by his friends, family, and admirers. Leonard is survived by his sister, Eleanor Frank Weinstock, and her three children, Ann, Jane, and Chuck. A memorial will be held Saturday, January 31, 10:30 am at the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples, 2041 Larkin Street, San Francisco.
