Children's Aid Mourns Former Board Chair Ted Lamont
The Children's Aid Society mourns the passing of Edward Miner (Ted) Lamont, former chairman of the board and a tireless advocate for New York City children. A native New Yorker, Ted served on the Children's Aid board for 45 years, including as president from 1981-1987 and chair from 1987-1993. He was an outspoken supporter of community schools and ensuring high-quality academic opportunities for all children. He was also deeply involved in managing the organization's financial affairs. In recognition of Ted's many contributions, he was awarded Children's Aid's highest honor, the Charles Loring Brace Award, in 1999. Our hearts go out to his family, particularly his three children and five grandchildren.
