Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on the Passing of Business Leader and Philanthropist Sidney Harman

We offer our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Sidney Harman who passed yesterday. As a co-founder of Harman Kardon, he and his partner invented the first stereo receivers and made Hi-Fi audio available to a wide market. Most recently Sidney became the owner of Newsweek magazine.

He was a person of immense intellect, talent and generosity and will be remembered for his considerable contributions to the fields of business, government and philanthropy.

Our hearts go out to his wife, former Congresswoman Jane Harman and their children.
