In Memoriam

Samuel J. “Jack” Bell, June 9, 1947 – February 23, 2008

Jack was a great friend to the ACLU of Oklahoma. He was always willing to help out in any capacity at the affiliate office. The floor to ceiling library shelves in the conference rooms were constructed by Jack. He was always available with his truck when the affiliate office moved to a bigger and better location. Jack was the unofficial “photographer” for the affiliate, capturing photos for the newsletter and web site and helping with bulk mailings. He is missed.

Harley Brown, October 26, 1907 - June 6, 2008

Harley was a retired University of Oklahoma professor. His support of civil liberties was inspired by anti-communist witch hunts directed at faculty members on college campuses during the 1940s and 50s. He was a long time supporter of the ACLU.
