We are saddened to report the passing of Tom Goldwasser on October 31, 2017. Tom had been in declining health for the last three years, but his death was sudden and unexpected.

For more than a quarter of a century, Tom Goldwasser was a valued adjunct professor at Montgomery College, first at the Takoma Park Campus, then at Rockville. He primarily taught Political Science. Tom was an admirably humble man who had the courage of his convictions, and was involved in several campaigns. He was active in Robert Kennedy's bid for the presidency in 1968. He served as one of the press secretaries in the 1969 race of reform union leader Jock Yablonski for the presidency of the United Mine Workers. He published op-ed pieces in newspapers as varied as the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal. He also wrote Family Pride: Secrets of America's Five Best Run Family Businesses, a book which examined the success of H and R Block, Hallmark and three other family firms. Tom is survived by his beloved wife Joan and two daughters.

Condolences may be sent to his family at the following address:

Joan Goldwasser
5435 31st St. NW
