Marshall Fritz (March 10, 1943 – November 4, 2008) was an American libertarian activist. A native of Inglewood, California, Fritz was chairman, founder, and former president of the Alliance for the Separation of School and State.[1] Prior to founding that organization, he founded the Advocates for Self-Government, a non-profit, non-partisan libertarian advocacy and education center. He employed "The World's Smallest Political Quiz" as a lead in to ask for signatures on the pledge. Throughout the 1990s and until his illness prevented his pursuits, Fritz organized an annual "Sep Con" as a forum to encourage families to remove their children from government funded schools.

Fritz died at his home in Fresno, California, on November 4, 2008, from prostate cancer.[2]
