In Memoriam: Ted Anglyn, MAI

It's with great sadness that we report the passing of Ted Anglyn, MAI. Ted's influence on the appraisal industry and specifically LDAC cannot be overstated. Ted used his own money and resources to make sure LDAC not only survived, but thrived. Our deepest sympathies go out to Ted's family, his appraiser family, and the North Carolina Chapter.
