Muskie for President San Diego Headquarters.
When not at San Diego State College, or working, I volunteered for Muskie. No one was more surprised than me, when I was made a delegate to the 1972 Democratic Convention!Until 1972, 18 year olds were deemed mature enough for war drafts, but not to vote. As a volunteer I registered hundreds of new voters, when none of us were deemed smart enough to register ourselves. Few voted, though eligible, because those certified to register us were not easily found.
Stephen Reinhardt led the fight to assure that our delegation to the 1972 Democratic Convention reflected the state’s sex, race and economic diversity. His lifetime commitment to an America made greater by social and economic justice continues as a Federal Judge on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
