Governor William Winter
February 21, 1923 - December 18, 2020
We are saddened to announce that Governor William Winter, National Issues Forums Institute (NIFI) chairman emeritus, has passed away.
Dr. David Mathews, National Issues Forums Institute Chairman, had this to say in remembering Governor Winter:
The National Issues Forums (NIF) have had no stronger champion than Governor William Winter, NIFI chairman emeritus, who died December 18, 2020. He saw the promise in NIF in its earliest days and continued to encourage public deliberation when political discourse turned hyperpartisan and mean spirited. He was one of democracy’s brightest lights in its darkest hours.
