Ford School Dean Michael S. Barr reflected on the passing of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright:
"Madeleine Albright was a pathbreaking leader in foreign affairs even before she became Secretary of State. She was smart, tough, tenacious, and also really funny. She was a wonderful mentor to me as I launched my career, as I know she was to so many others. She will be sorely missed."
Albright died at the age of 84 on March 23.
