Sunset Magazine publisher, philanthropist, and great friend of Committee for Green Foothills, Bill Lane died on Saturday at the age of 90.
We will write more about Bill but wanted to send out our best wishes to his family and friends. He did a great deal in his long life to protect the legacy of the West, actions that will continue to have benefits for generations to come. He had done much to support Committee for Green Foothills and our work over the years. That legacy will also live on – just this summer we have had our first intern come work with us, working together with the Bill Lane Center for the American West. Bill will be missed, and always appreciated.
Information about him is at the Palo Alto Online, and the Mercury News. A celebration of his 90th birthday is at The Almanac.
