Graham Berkeley

A Lover of Freedom

Graham Berkeley, a Briton, had lived in the United States for 10 years, and for 10 years he had been trying to get the green card that would grant him resident status. It came at last in June, and Mr. Berkeley had started making plans to move to New York City from Boston when, on Sept. 11, he boarded United Airlines Flight 175 for a business trip to Los Angeles.

"It's like fate playing tricks on you," said his friend Christian Winslow. "His fight for that green card had been so intense."

Mr. Berkeley, 37, was director of e-commerce solutions for the Compuware Corporation, but his friends remember him as a classical violinist, an opera buff and a world traveler. "He loved the freedom that America has," Mr. Winslow said. "He loved the openness of our society and the friends he had here. America, to Graham, was almost like the cliché — a land of endless opportunities."
