Sidney Harman dies

The patron whose name graces Sidney Harman hall has died at age 92.

His family released a statement, made public by the Daily Beast, that says he died in Washington of complications from acute myeloid leukemia.

Everyone recognizes Sidney Harman for different reasons, but everyone recognizes him.  Whether it be his audio-systems empire, his patronage of the arts, or his gutsy purchase of Newsweek for one dollar and subsequent management of the magazine.
