Creative Writing at The New School

UPDATED: The New School will hold a memorial service for Will Gary on Tuesday, February 25 at 4:00pm in the Auditorium at 66 W. 12th Street. All are welcome.

In December, the New School community was shocked and saddened to learn that beloved New School security officer Will Gary passed away on Tuesday, December 3rd. Since that initial report, The New School Free Press and DNAinfo have both written stories about Will, including remembrances from members of The New School community.

Many of you have inquired about services or ways to direct support to Will’s family to help with expenses. To facilitate individual contributions, the university has set up an account with “Give Forward.”

All of us here at the Writing Program cherished Will's friendship, and we will miss him every day.
