Clara Solomon
July 30, 1913 – December 20, 2000

We neglected to mention a very important and sad event in the last Perspectives: the death of Clara Solomon on December 20th, 2000. Clara was a lifelong anarchist, an accomplished pianist, and a lovely comrade and friend. She instilled feelings of confidence in all those she encountered and her warm words of encouragement were especially important to younger activists (such as myself). Her cosmopolitan intelligence, steadfast commitment to anarchism, and gentle manner pushed many of us to fight harder and to be more bold. I am one among many who will miss her deeply.
