RIP Elinor Ostrom

June 12, 2012

“Ostrom, 78, died of cancer at 6:40 a.m. today at IU Health Bloomington Hospital surrounded by friends. She was senior research director of the Vincent and Elinor Ostrom Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis, Distinguished Professor and Arthur F. Bentley Professor of Political Science in the College of Arts and Sciences, and professor in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs.”

This is a great loss for the economics community. Her Nobel lecture is here, and here is her Wikipedia page. Pete Boettke wrote an article about her in 2009 after she won the Nobel.

On June 29, she was joined by her husband, Vincent.
