In Memoriam

We want to honor Eric Eden Sumner, Jr. who died at his home recently. He was a significant influence on MAX and an ardent fan of our MAXforum series where big scientific ideas collide with expansive artistic vision. We were privileged to have him as a member of our community.

Two essential themes repeated throughout Eric’s career. One was technical: finding patterns in large, complex data sets (what we call Big Data today). The other theme consisted of softer skills: communicating complex ideas, getting the right allies, and leading great teams.

At MAX we pursue those same themes – using technology for larger humanitarian purposes by supporting a community of talented creators and thinkers. We hope to achieve with the rigor and excellence of Eric Sumner, Jr.
