In Memory of Mr. Houghton “Buck” Freeman
Van J. Symons
Shortly after hearing of Houghton Freeman’s death on December 1, 2010, in Stowe, Vermont, leaders of ASIANetwork created a window on our website to enable members to submit letters of condolences to the Freeman family. What followed was amazing as liter¬ally dozens and dozens of individuals wrote to express their appreciation for Buck and for the Freeman Foundation. Some of those writers were board members and ASIANetwork leaders, while others were consortium members who had participated in the Freeman Foundation–funded “College-in-Asia” and “Student-Faculty Fellows” programs. All were aware that without the early and continued support of Buck and the Freeman family, the impressive emergence of ASIANetwork could not have occurred.
