Ted Stanley, NPR Benefactor, Dies At 85
ROBERT SIEGEL, Host:
And by sad coincidence, we note the passing of a philanthropist whose favorite causes included the Chesapeake Bay and NPR. For many years, NPR listeners have heard acknowledgments for Ted and Jennifer Stanley. Well, Ted Stanley died last week at age 85. Ted's great generosity was exceeded only by his humility and good nature. To Jennifer and the entire Stanley family, our condolences.
