It is with great sadness that I report the death of our colleague Paul Green, Professor of Public Administration and Director of Roosevelt’s Institute for Politics. Paul taught more than a generation of students since his arrival at Roosevelt in 1999, hired every member of our current Department of Political Science and Public Administration, and published widely and influentially, both in local media and through multiple editions of his classic study of Chicago mayoral politics. Paul was a fixture on the Chicago political landscape, making frequent media appearances and offering incisive political commentary on the ins and outs of city, state, and national politics. For the past five years, Paul also served as Chairman of the City Club of Chicago, which remembered him for his “boundless commitment to the free exchange of ideas in a forum of civility, respect, and always, good humor.” We remember him for those qualities and for his tremendous collegiality, and he will be sorely missed.
