With great sadness, I'd like to convey that Anne quietly
slipped away from us last night at her home in Concord
with her husband Lewis and family by her side.

In addition to being a most gracious and endearing person 
who touched and motivated so many people's lives and careers
in this field around the world, she significantly shaped
the universe of cyberspace policy and was - perhaps more 
than any other person - the founding visionary of the 
entire domain of the law of global networks through her 
decades of work and leadership.

Lewis advises that notes to the family can be sent to 
<ABranscomb () aol com>

Some brief biographical information about this extraordinary
woman's life can be found at <http://www.ngi.org/AWB/>
Harvard University is expected to put up a more extensive
site shortly.


"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary
 safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."       - Ben Franklin, ~1784
