Peter Benenson dies 25 February 2005 at the age of 83
Who is Peter Benenson? Well, he started out to personally protest what he saw as an injustice but decided that he should do more than just register his personal complaint and see if he could get others to voice their protests as well. (yeah, just click the colored words)

Aw, god bless his soul. His legacy lives on in everyone involved in AI.

yes, now i want to read some thing more about him besides that monograph by his long time co-worker. i want to see if others saw him as the quiet and lovable but persistent worker or if he was a nag and pain in the ass or whatever.

*L* It would be interesting to find out what was behind the legend.

I've always heard about the organization, but not much about the man who started it. I guess that kinda hints that he really was shy, because most people who start groups are quite happy to jump in front of every camera and scream their name from the rooftops. Thanks for the link, Wray!
