Thomas H. Lee, IIASA's fourth Director, passed away on 4 February 2001. The following statement was issued by Gary Burchill, president of the Center for Quality of Management:

"Tom's lifelong, passionate pursuit of improvement was not limited to the physical devices he created as an engineer or the management systems he developed at IIASA and CQM, but always extended to a focus on the greater good of humanity. The dignity and respect he sincerely showed to everyone illustrate how in all things, small and large his paramount concern involved people. He was truly a man we are blessed to have known."
