Marshall Fritz, founder of the Advocates of Self-Government, dies at 65

Lew Rockwell reports:

Marshall Fritz, 65, a genial giant of the libertarian movement, has died from cancer after a long and heroic fight. The founder of the Advocates of Self-Government and the Alliance for Separation of School and State, Marshall was a happy warrior for liberty. Even desperate disease did not change his good and optimistic nature nor his dedication to freedom, for which he never stopped working. A devout Catholic, Marshall is survived by Joan, his wife of 43 years, four children, and 12 grandchildren.

Marshall Fritz was the inventor of the World's Smallest Political Quiz which, in conjunction with the Nolan Chart, has been distributed widely and become a mainstay of Government, Civics, and Political Science textbooks.

In honour of Marshall and his dedication to the separation of school and state, I'm reposting this wonderful video:
