“The Independent Institute sorrowfully announces that David J. Theroux, Independent’s Founder and President, has died after a brief illness. Mr. Theroux passed away in Oakland, California on Saturday, April 23 in the company of his loving family. Prior to founding Independent, David earned three degrees from the University of California at Berkeley, followed by an M.B.A. from the University of Chicago. His education, combined with his philosophical inclinations, propelled him quickly into the rigorous address of public affairs. He became founding Vice President and Director of Academic Affairs for the Cato Institute (then in San Francisco, now in Washington, D.C.), following which he became the founding President of the Pacific Research Institute for Public Policy. David founded the Independent Institute, as an academic, non-profit, public policy, research and educational organization, in 1986.” (04/27/22)
