Patrick Reynolds watched his father, R.J. Reynolds, Jr., and eldest brother, R.J. Reynolds III, die from smoking-caused emphysema. In 1986, Mr. Reynolds became the first tobacco industry figure to speak out publicly against the cigarette companies, when he testified in Congress in favor of an end to all tobacco advertising. Former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop called his testimony "invaluable to our society" and also commented, "Patrick Reynolds is one of the nation's most influential advocates of a smokefree America" Since first taking his stand, he continues to crisscross the nation to speak, and advocate laws and referendums nationally.

Mr. Reynolds has been invited as a guest on Good Morning America, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News Channel, Nightline, Larry King, the Today Show and numerous other talk, news and debate shows. He is a frequent keynote speaker before universities, conferences and youth groups. Mr. Reynolds is President of Tobaccofree.Org, which in 2011 released "The Truth About Tobacco," a new educational video of his live assembly program for middle and high schools. In 1989, Little, Brown published his bestselling book, "The Gilded Leaf," -- to rave revues. http://www.TobaccoFree.org/book
