To CryoNet
From Steve Bridge, Chairman
Alcor Life Extension Foundation
October 21, 1998
     At Alcor's annual Board meeting on September 13, 1998, Alcor
elected Gary Meade to its Board of Directors.  Gary replaced Carlos
Mondragon, who has retired from Alcor's Board after more than 12
years of service.
     Gary Meade has been an Alcor member for seven years and has been
a member of Alcor's Patient Care Trust Board for the past year.  He
has been employed as a corporate attorney for many years in California
and Oregon.
     Both Gary and Carlos will remain Patient Care Trustees, but Gary
will now be the official Alcor Board of Directors representative on
the Trust Board.
     With the exception of Hugh Hixon, Carlos Mondragon was the longest
remaining Alcor Director.  Carlos had been there for most of Alcor's
transitions and crises and was one of the keys to Alcor surviving the
Dora Kent affair in 1988, when he became Alcor's President.  He
remained President until the beginning of 1993, then continued as one
of Alcor's most important Directors.  His financial knowledge, Alcor
history, and unwavering committment to patient security were crucial
to Alcor's direction.
     Carlos will continue to be an official Advisor to the Board of
     And, for the record, there really should be an accent mark over
the second "o" in "Mondragon," but it doesn't translate to ASCII.
