Harry Weider

I want to inform you of the death of Harry Weider, who was killed in late April in New York. I believe you knew Harry, but didn't know if you were aware of his death. Harry was not only a gay rights activist, but also fought for rights for the disabled, as well as Jews and dwarfs [he was a "little person" but very big in heart and stature]. E. A.

Yes, I knew Harry and liked and admired him very much. I have posted a tribute to him on my brother blog, jatgab, and it can be found here. It goes into my personal recollections of Harry.

There's much more about Harry's life and accomplishments on the Jewish Journal.

Harry will be greatly missed.
