Rose Friedman (1910-2009)

See her Chicago Tribune obituary here.

Wikipedia summarizes her career:

She and her husband co-wrote two books on economics and public policy: Free to Choose and Tyranny of the Status Quo. She also helped produce the PBS television series, "Free to Choose." She and her husband published their memoirs Milton and Rose D. Friedman, Two Lucky People in 1998. They have two children, Janet and David.

She and her husband founded the Milton and Rose D. Friedman Foundation, with the aim of promoting the use of school vouchers and freedom of choice in education.

Check out my Milton Friedman obituary, and my review of Free to Choose.

Many thanks to the Friedmans for their fight for freedom.
