A friend of charity with the highest calibre of mind and heart, Amy Kass, senior fellow of the Hudson Institute, passed away on Wednesday; she was 75.

"When Amy Kass joined Hudson Institute in 2005 after a career as an award-winning teacher at the University of Chicago, she quickly lifted her colleagues out of the arid world of public policy analysis and into the vivid world of story.

"Story in all its forms—compelling short fiction, inspiring historical and biographical tale, soaring poetry, speech and song—lay at the heart of Amy’s imaginative, fruitful and unique work at Hudson: the Dialogues on Civic Philanthropy that resulted in Giving Well, Doing Good: Readings for Thoughtful Philanthropists; the collection of readings on American character and citizenship that became What So Proudly We Hail: The American Soul in Story, Speech and Song, co-edited with her husband Leon Kass and Diana Schaub; and her skilled moderating of the first half-dozen annual Bradley Symposia, as well as discussions of a classic Christmas story each holiday season." --William A. Schambra, the Hudson Institute
