Submit a Tribute for Chris Cieri

With deep sadness, LDC announces the passing of Christopher Cieri, our Executive Director. Chris led the Consortium for over 25 years, guiding its evolution from a small data repository to a prominent global data center that creates, shares and preserves language resources. 

An accomplished linguist and computer scientist and a well-read humanist, Chris embodied the best qualities for executing the wide range of duties demanded by his leadership role. He was a valued colleague and friend and will be sorely missed.
