Children visit a makeshift memorial to Seattle schools superintendent John Stanford, who died of leukemia November 28 at the age of 60. Stanford, a retired U.S. Army general, became one of the few noneducators to lead a big-city school system when he was appointed in 1995. In a written statement, President Clinton said Stanford's courage and optimism inspired "an entire community to believe once again in their public schools."
