Peter F. Geithner Memorial Service


More than 80 friends and colleagues of the late Peter F. Geithner, who worked for the Ford Foundation for 28 years and was a former president of The LAFF Society, gathered in New York City at the Ford Foundation headquarters on September 8 to honor a man described as “a champion for justice who served the cause of human dignity with distinction”.


The following are some pictures taken at the gathering. We are unable to identify all the people in the photographs, so would appreciate it if readers who know who they are would send us the information. We can add names when we get them. Contact either John LaHoud at or Nellie Toma at
