Frederik Sigfred Franck (Maastricht, 12 april 1909 - Warwick, New York, 5 juny 2006) wie in skilder, byldhouwer en auteur fan goed 30 boeken oer it Bûdisme en oare ûnderwerpen. Hy wie bekend om syn ynteresse yn de spiritualiteit fan de minske. Yn 1945 waard er Amerikaansk steatsboarger. Hy wie tsjeaksjirurch fan berop en wurke fan 1958 oant 1961 yn West-Afrika op mei dr. Albert Schweitzer.

Syn skulptueren binne te finen yn de kolleksjes fan it Museum of Modern Art (New York), it Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), it Fogg Art Museum (Universiteit fan Harvard), it Nasjonaal museum fan Tokio en de Katedraal Saint John the Divine (New York).

Franck syn wichtichste skepping wie lykwols in byldetún en park grinzgjend oan syn hiem yn Warwick, New York, dat er Pacem in Terris neamde, "Frede op Ierde". Yn 1959 kochten Franck en syn oarehelte, Claske Berndes Franck, it terrein mei in âlde nôtmûne, dat yn de rin fan de jierren in soarte fan stoart wurden wie, foar $800. Sy iepenen Pacem in Terris yn 1966 foar it publyk. Dr. Franck wijde it oan Albert Schweitzer, mar ek oan paus Johannes XXIII en de bûdistyske learaar D.T. Suzuki. It pân hat goed 70 bylden en wurdt beheard troch in stichting.
