Remembering Peter V. Harrington



With sadness, I would like to let you know that Peter V. Harrington, former Executive Director of ICEE (1971-97), passed away on Tuesday, August 5, 2014.

I know many of you had the chance to work with Pete and know of his tremendous contributions to economic education. Pete was instrumental in building the network of university centers in Indiana. Under his leadership, thousands of teachers around the state of Indiana participated in graduate credit-courses in economic education offered by the university centers.

Today, we recognize our top university Center for Economic Education with the Peter V. Harrington Award. In addition to the center network, Pete built a state and community wide support network. In particular, his outreach and partnership with government, business, education, and agriculture established a strong foundation for integrating economics across grade levels and disciplines.

A funeral service was held on Saturday, August 9, 2014 at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Peachtree City, GA. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to St. Vincent DePaul.

On behalf of the ICEE network and the thousands of teachers who were impacted by Pete's work, I wish to extend our condolences to the Harrington family.
