To some he was a friend, and to others he was a foe. He was frequently controversial within the libertarian movement, and often took the Libertarian Party (and me) to task. In my opinion, he always tried to report what he saw as the truth as fairly as possible. According to Tom Knapp, editor and publisher of “Liberty” R.W. “Bill” Bradford passed away. Here is one announcement:
I am grieved to tell you that R.W. Bradford, founder of “Liberty,” died on Thursday, December 8, at his home in Port Townsend, Washington. He was 58 and had fought heroically against cancer for many months.
Bill was surrounded by friends and family, and by the good wishes of his many friends throughout the world.
An upcoming issue of “Liberty” will feature a commemoration of Bill’s life. His work will continue.
I’ll miss him, but am pleased that his work will continue. I’m sure he would have wanted it that way.
