H.

Frederickson is responsible for coordinating the second Minnowbrook Conference, Minnowbrook II, held in 1988. The conference was held at Syracuse University’s conference center in the Adirondack Mountains. Lasting a total of four days, Minnowbrook II gave Frederickson and his colleagues the chance to reexamine the impacts of Minnowbrook I on the field of Public Administration.

In 1968 Frederickson came up with “a theory of social equity and put it forward as the “third pillar” of public administration.”Frederickson was concerned that those in public administration were making the mistake of assuming that citizen A is the same as citizen B; ignoring social and economic conditions. His goal is: for social equity to take on the same “status as economy and efficiency as values or principles to which public administration should adhere.

Circumstances surrounding his death is yet to be revealed. We will update you as soon as we have more information about his death.
