Stephen Everhart, associate professor of finance and associate dean for undergraduate studies and administration at the School of Business of the American University in Cairo, was killed last week in Baghdad when a bomb exploded near his car as he was returning to the U.S. embassy compound from meetings at a university. Everhart was serving as a consultant to the U.S. Agency for International Development on a project to promote entrepreneurship education in Iraqi universities' schools of business and commerce. A statement from American University in Cairo said: "His infectious enthusiasm, his curiosity, passion and wisdom made him a skilled alliance-builder and formidable advocate for business as an engine of growth and prosperity in the developing world."
