From Michaeline Veden – 8/23/2007
Allan Hinderstein passed away on June 3, at age 68, after a sudden and brief illness. He had just finished his 5-year early retirement committment at Sacramento State and was scheduled to be fully retired at the end of the Spring semester.
We will be having a celebration of life in honor of Allan on Friday, September 28, 2007, at 2 p.m. in (appropriately enough) the Teleproduction Center One Studios at Sacramento State (Lib South LL Room 52A).
I worked with Allan for almost 30 years and I know how special his time at WGBH was to him. He often spoke of his many projects and colleagues and enjoyed going back for the reunions, although the last couple of times he lamented to me that “we lost another couple good ones this year.”
If anyone from the WGBH alumni family would like to send thoughts to be shared at the memorial service, or privately for the family, please contact me. And if anyone would like to attend the celebration of life, they are more than welcome, I can provide logistical information.
Also, there is a student achievement award in Allan’s name that will be announced at the service. If anyone would like more information or would like to contribute, please contact me.
