Bennett Harrison (1942-99)

This issue of Cityscape is dedicated to Bennet Harrison -- author, economist, teacher, colleague, and friend. Ben devoted his life and work to building knowledge on the roots of economic transition and social inequality in America's cities -- and to illuminating promising ways to respond to both. He was a founding member of the Cityscape Advisory Board and a contributing author.

We miss him and we are grateful for his many gifts.
