Our friend and 2009 Lincoln Fellow Andrew Breitbart has passed away suddenly at the age of 43. Andrew was generous of spirit, passionately conservative in his own iconoclastic way, and tireless in his opposition to left-wing media bias. He saw modern liberalism as an attack on American constitutionalism and individual freedom. Only this insight could have driven him to build a new-media empire whose impact will be felt for years to come. Andrew Breitbart made his mark on American politics. He leaves behind a loving family, and will be missed by all his friends in Claremont. We were proud to have known him.
