We mourn the loss of Harvey M. Krueger, a longtime active member of the Truman Institute’s Board of Trustees. The Institute benefited greatly from his experience and wisdom. Renowned in the field of investment banking, Harvey was equally admired and respected for his tireless efforts in support of Israel and its economic and educational institutions.He served two terms as president of the American Friends of Hebrew University, and was chairman of the Hebrew University Board of Governors for nine years.
