To Friends of the American Monetary Institute

Dear Friends of the American Monetary Institute,

Some sad news: Our dear friend and fellow monetary reformer, Richard Distelhorst, of Burlington Iowa, passed away on Saturday, February 19th in his 90th year of life. Dick was always a great and passionate help to all of us in getting the facts on the Federal reserve, and formulating our policies and strategies for achieving reform. Many times when I put out a question to our key people in an evening email, dick's analysis would be ready and emailed back by the time I turned on the computer in the morning. Dick's latest video from our 2010 Conference, which brought people to their feet, can be viewed at our youtube site: Dick was an inspiration to all of us, and his mind was razor sharp to the end! We will miss him,
and establish and define a Distelhorst Prize for Monetary Excellence by our September Conference.
