Founder of Cryonics Movement Dies, is Frozen at Cryonics Institute
Date:7/25/2011

Philosophy of Robert Ettinger (2002) is a collection of academic essays discussing Mr. Ettinger's ideas.

Mr. Ettinger was born in 1918, and served in the U.S. Army in Belgium during World War II, where he was seriously wounded. Mr. Ettinger spent several years in hospitals after the war, and his legs were saved as a result of then innovative bone graft surgery. That sparked Mr. Ettinger's interest in the promise of future medical technology.

Mr. Ettinger founded the Cryonics Institute in 1976 in order to create a non-profit organization that could freeze and store patients at death. CI (www.cryonics.org) has over 900 members worldwide in addition to 106 patients in storage. As advances in research have further confirmed the likelihood of dramatic improvements in future medicine, the cryonics movement has grown to include thousands of supporters worldwide, including organizations in Russia, Australia, Germany and other locations.

Mr. Ettinger also founded the Immortalist Society, an organization devoted to education and research relating to cryonics and life extension.
