RIP Edward C. Johnson III

Edward C. Johnson III, 91, Dies; Made Fidelity an Investment Giant

From the NY Times
March 24, 2022

Ned Johnson, as he was called, continued his father's support of the SFZC most generously through the years. I met him two times. Once in 1973 when I was Richard Baker's jisha, and the second time in 1999 when he expressed an interest in supporting the digitization and transcription of Shunryu Suzuki's audio archive. We should all be most grateful to him and his family and his family fund for their substantial contributions that have helped significantly to establish Shunryu Suzuki's way in the West. - DC
