A man of reconciliation

There is likely no one word to describe attorney John Stringer Rainey, who died at the age of 73 on Saturday following a short illness. The one most usually ascribed to him is "philanthropist." One dictionary definition of the word states a philanthropist is "a person who seeks to promote the welfare of others, especially by the generous of money to good causes."
