Goodstein, David (1932-1985)  
 
page: 1  2  3  

Death and Legacy

Goodstein died in San Diego on June 22, 1985 as a result of complications after surgery for bowel cancer. A few months earlier he had sold The Advocate to Niles Merton, an Orange County businessman.

After Goodstein's death The Advocate dissociated itself from Eichberg's workshop program, which changed its name to The Experience and continued in operation until 2001, when it folded because of declining interest.

Sponsor Message.

The Advocate magazine remains a leading national source of glbtq news and now appears in both print and on-line formats.

Perhaps Goodstein's greatest personal legacy was his generous gift to his alma mater Cornell University to help fund the university's Human Sexuality Collection, which officially came into being in 1988. In addition to a significant financial contribution, Goodstein donated some of his own papers and personal memorabilia to the collection.
