Written by Warren Christopher, Former U.S. Secretary of State, Fred's classmate and co-law Review Editor at Stanford Law School (Class of '49).

Fred was a great friend, going back to law school days, and we will all miss him.  He has an important place in California history with his great leadership in the Pat Brown days and his role in the Regents.  As I think back over my life and times, I have the strongest reasons to be grateful to him and to revere his memory.
