Remembering Dr. Walter Herron
Letter to State Rep. Laurie Jinkins to rectify past anti-Gay injustice in Tacoma

Dear Rep. Jinkins,

I write as a friend of former Pierce County Director of Public Health, Dr. Walter Herron, who was fired in the early 1980s after he came out publicly as gay. Dr. Herron and his partner left Tacoma for Las Vegas, where he served at the VA and on the front lines of the HIV crisis until his retirement.

Dr. Herron died in November at the age of 90. I feel Dr. Herron and his widower, now in his 70s, are owed an official apology. I know Tacoma is now a very welcoming LGBT community, but this wrong has never been addressed. I noticed that a schoolteacher who was fired in Tacoma for the same reason in [1972] did receive an apology.

Please read more about Dr. Herron and let us know if you can help us or guide us.

Thanks,

Steve Friess
Freelance Journalist
