Published in Sept. 10, 2003, issue

Our distinguished classmate died Feb. 17, 2003, in Arlington, Va. He was buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

Harry majored in history at Princeton and graduated magna cum laude. He left Harvard Law School to join the Navy during WWII. He received a law degree from Columbia and a doctorate in history from George Washington U.

Harry first worked as an attorney for the Tennessee Valley Authority, then spent 12 years in Oregon, where he practiced law, worked for the Dept. of the Interior, served as a district attorney, and was active in the Democratic Party. In 1962 he became associate solicitor at the Dept. of the Interior. During the next 20 years, Harry was counsel for the House Subcommittee on Higher Education, director of government relations for Catholic U., assistant director of Action (Peace Corps and Vista), and associate director of Washington's Consortium of Universities.

After retiring he worked for organizations promoting volunteerism, education, and conflict resolution.

Harry was a devoted husband to his wife, Virginia, from 1941 until she died in 1995, and a loving father to daughters Shannon Sorzano, Grace Hogan, and Monica Mullin '78. Four grandchildren and two brothers also survive. His classmates send sincere sympathies to the family of this man devoted to service.
