  • Robert Muller (1923- 2010), former assistant secretary general of the United Nations, renowned peace and education activist (4th from left). The world experienced a huge loss recently with the death of Robert Muller. Dr. Robert Muller was an inspiration in the founding of Us Foundation. We are grateful for the wisdom and love that Dr. Muller has shown us and the world. His wisdom, love and sense of humor will live on through his books, Ideas for a Better World and most of all what he has left in our hearts. We will miss him and his exuberant and positive attitude and his harmonica playing of the Ode to Joy. Click here to read a tribute to Dr. Muller.
