Remembering the Late Frederick Nader

 

Frederick P. Nader, an ODN member for nearly 20 years, passed away on Friday, November 7, 2014. Nader was a long-time contributor to and supporter of the values, principles and practices of Organization Development (OD). He was President Emeritus ofNTL Institute, serving twice from 1987-1991 and again from 2010-2012. He was also a founding director ofThe Lewin Center, where he committed his time to furthering the legacy of Kurt Lewin through social change and action research. Nader was recently honored with aLifetime Achievement Awardduring the OD Network 2014 Annual Conference.

 

In addition to his work in OD, Nader long aligned himself with the causes of social justice and education, working tirelessly to progress the rights of juveniles in the justice system of New Hampshire and across the United States as Director of Operations, Office of Juvenile Justice, U.S. Department of Justice. In addition he was an Adjunct Professor at The American University, Washington, DC.

 

To launch his career, Nader earned a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Master's degree from Boston University. During that time, he was selected as the Simon Gutman Fellow at the Boston University Human Relations Center under the tutelage of Ken Benne.
