At its core, the World Affairs Council of St. Louis is a network of people who believe in its mission, and today we mourn the loss of an important person in that network, Dick Bauer. Dick was a dedicated volunteer with the IVLP home hospitality program, welcoming countless visitors over the years to his home. Dick worked for the County Board of Elections until his retirement in 2009 when he joined the WAC community. During his time with the Board of Elections, he had the opportunity to travel abroad as a U.S. election observer, working to champion democracy around the world. The WAC works to connect St. Louis to the world, and Dick did so throughout his life with passion and dedication. The World Affairs Council will miss Dick greatly.
