SF Usual Suspects

We are diminished

Richard Henry Fogel, a newspaper editor and co-founder of San Francisco’s Bay City News Service, died on Sept. 9, 2009, at the age of 86.  Fogel was a steadfast advocate for the public’s right to access government information, whose efforts later helped craft the principles of the Freedom of Information Act.  We thank him for his service to his profession and to our country.
