Alan MacPherson, RIP December 22, 2008

Posted by Brian Schar in General.

The world lost a great man earlier this month, when Alan MacPherson passed away.  Alan was a top-notch attorney well-known in Silicon Valley and further afield, whose zeal and enjoyment of patent law were immediately apparent to anyone who knew him even a little.  More importantly, he was a true old-school gentleman of a kind that is sadly hard to find these days.  He was very generous to me personally; when I quit the Orange County office of his firm to take a position in-house in the Bay Area, he immediately offered to let me stay at his house in Palo Alto while my wife finished out her contract at her job and while I looked for a place for my wife and I to live.  Alan was a friend, and he will be missed.

A memorial service is planned for January 14 at Stanford Memorial Church.
