Statement on the Passing of Hudson Institute Co-Founder Max Singer

Hudson Institute

WASHINGTON – Hudson Institute regrets to announce the passing of our co-founder, senior fellow, and trustee emeritus Max Singer, after a long and valiant battle with cancer.

“Max was a cherished member of the Hudson family,” said Ken Weinstein, Hudson Institute President and CEO. “Max was a friend to many, a model of intellectual probity, and an active scholar until the very end. Through the decades he made invaluable contributions to the Institute, from before its founding as a young Harvard Law graduate who joined Herman Kahn in the quest to form a different kind of think tank, through numerous critically acclaimed books to, most recently, Wall Street Journal op-eds written from his chemotherapy ward in Jerusalem. We are deeply grateful for his life, and this loss will be felt acutely.”

Max is survived by his wife Sue, three sons, and numerous grandchildren. Please join us in offering condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues past and present.
