Donations in Howard’s memory are welcome, but the family would prefer that you do not send flowers or gifts to them.  Howard saw the apex of his life’s work embodied in the post-conflict peace building and reconciliation programs in Africa that he initiated at the Woodrow Wilson Center in 2002, and would want that legacy to continue.  The Africa Program and the Project on Leadership and Building State Capacity, which Howard directed for six productive and exciting years, continue under Steve McDonald’s stewardship to underpin the transitions to peace, democracy and development in countries like Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Liberia and elsewhere.  So, Please send any donations to the following address, stating that they are in Howard’s memory:   The Woodrow Wilson Center, the Africa Program, One Woodrow Wilson Plaza, 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20004-3027. The Woodrow Wilson Center's Africa Program is a 501(c)3.
