Orphaned as an infant when his father murdered his Uncle, picking cotton as a child during the depression to survive, a war hero and survivor when he went down with the ship when it was torpedoed by a German U Boat. He would go on to help lead Los Angeles in it’s business and civic institution working tirelessly to open those institutions to minorities and women.

Advisor to mailroom boys and Presidents he still found time to write incredible love letters for 22 years every night he was away from his wife.
