John was a genuine municipal hero who was instrumental in saving New York City from bankruptcy in the 1970s. He graciously agreed to serve on the Baruch Archives’s advisory committee for a National Endowment for the Humanities grant to preserve and promulgate the IPA Collection and Luther Gulick Papers. Farewell, John — you served our fair city extraordinarily well!
