It is with great sadness that we write of the passing of Linda Whetstone.

Linda was Chairman of the Atlas Network, an international association of free-market think tanks, and of Network for a Free Society.

As the daughter of Sir Anthony Fisher, co-founder of the Institute of Economic Affairs, she followed his legacy as a dear friend of the IEA and Member of our board of Trustees. She has also served as a board member and President of the Mont Pelerin Society.

IEA Director General Mark Littlewood said:

“Linda dedicated her life to the cause of freedom and has transformed countless lives across the globe. We may not see her again, but we can be grateful for the incredible legacy she leaves us. My thoughts are with Linda’s immediate family – and her enormous extended family – on this very sad day.”
