Ward Chamberlin dies at 95


We are deeply saddened by the passing of a very dear friend and colleague.
A charter member of the AFS Foundation, Ward Chamberlin was a true hero in AFS and remained actively involved well into old age. He was keenly interested in everything that concerned AFS which was such a big part of his life.

Ward, it was a priviledge to have known you, you have been an example and an inspiration to all of us. We will miss you, your sagacity, your frankness, your humor and your many stories.


He brought light and courage into so many lives he crossed paths with.

Anouk Dutruit

He was one great man whom we shall always remember.
