Curtis Farrar

Curtis Farrar, 89, who retired about 15 years ago as director of finance and administration at the International Food Policy Research Institute, died Nov. 22 at his home in Washington. The cause was congestive heart failure, said a son, Douglas Farrar.

Dr. Farrar was born in New York City and had lived in the Washington area since 1963. He joined the institute in the mid-1990s after having been a World Bank agricultural research officer, a member of the State Department planning staff, a technical assistance specialist at the U.S. Agency for International Development and an officer of the Asia Foundation.
