My old friend Walter E. Grinder has passed away. When I first was honored to be part of Murray N. Rothbard’s living room crowd, it was Walter who took me under his wing. I owe a great debt to him for my adherence to, and knowledge about, Austrian economics and libertarianism. For a time, he an I were best friends. Walter never published too much, but his influence on the Austro-libertarian movement was profound. I was far from the only person for whom he fulfilled the role of tutor, mentor, friend. Walter was one of the few people to whom I dedicated my first published book, Defending the Undefendable I. Walter Grinder, RIP.
