david ernest mcreynolds (october 25, 1929 – august 17, 2018)

david mcreynolds was an american politician and social activist who recently died.

mcreynolds was born in los angeles, to elizabeth grace (tallon), a nurse, and lt. col. charles mcreynolds, an air force intelligence officer. in 1953 he graduated from ucla with a degree in political science.

he was close friends with Bayard Rustin and other prominent peace activists. mcreynolds was particularly active internationally, both in war resisters’ international of which he was chairperson for the term 1986–88, and in the international confederation for disarmament and peace which eventually merged into the international peace bureau.

how can those of us who believe in peace live up to his legacy? please leave a reply below. regards, philip lederer
