Richard Estes and Joe Sirgy would like to announce with great sadness the passing of Harry Halloran—a friend, colleague and philanthropist who contributed to the support of many ISQOLS activities. Acting in his capacity as President and Chairman of the Board of the American Refining Group, Harry allocated a large share of the organization’s profits to funding Halloran Philanthropies, a not-for-profit charity which continues to focus on building ethical leadership among emerging entrepreneurs, environmental protection through the use of non-fossil fuels, cultural renewal among indigenous peoples, and the advancement of worldwide quality of life through scholarship.
Consistent with these goals Harry supported original research and writing projects for a large number of the Society’s most seasoned scholars, supported many interim conferences as well as three of the Society’s international meetings. The Society, in turn, acknowledged Harry’s varied contributions by awarding Halloran Philanthropies the 2016 Award for the Betterment of the Human Condition. Thank you Harry and may you Rest In Peace.
