Remembering Richard K. Goeltz (1942-2020)

The American Academy in Berlin mourns the loss of trustee emeritus Richard K.Goeltz, who served the Academy as finance committee chair from 2008-2014. Richard was a Renaissance man in every sense of the word. While holding the Academy to strict financial protocols, he always presided with humanity and a deep appreciation for the Academy’s mission. His love of books, music, and art was uniquely interspersed with the practicality of administering a not-for-profit organization. Richard was part of the American Academy family, one of those early trustees who toiled arduously to make the Academy what it is today. He will be sorely missed by all who came to know him and appreciate him.
