The death of David and Anne Burnham

I have just heard the sad news that David Burnham, a leader in private and public education (among the institutions he graced were the Moses Brown School, St. Andrews School and the Paul Cuffee School) and  many other civic endeavors, has just died, hours after the death of his wife, Anne. He was one of the most energetic, congenial and public-spirited people I have met in my time in Rhode Island.
