I just found to my great delight a reference to my college roommate Don Harrison on the City of San Diego website. Read on.
"Donald H. Harrison is a journalist and author. A former politics writer for The San Diego Union, Don served as the last editor-in-chief and co-publisher of the San Diego Jewish Press-Heritage and now writes a regular column for the San Diego Jewish Times. He also publishes a website: www.jewishsightseeing.com.
In addition, Harrison has broad experience in the fields of public relations and tourism. As communications director to Acting Mayor Bill Cleaator in 1983, Harrison coordinated local press aspects of Queen Elizabeth II's visit to San Diego. He and Cleator started the San Diego Cruise Industry Consortium, which Harrison directed for nine years. Harrison also was the start-up general manager, tour designer and scriptwriter for Old Town Trolley Tours of San Diego.
Harrison is the author of Louis Rose: San Diego's First Jewish Settler and Entrepreneur, and serves as the president of the Louis Rose Society for the Preservation of Jewish History. He was nominated to the Historical Resources Board by Councilmember Jim Madaffer and appointed by mayor Dick Murphy.
He and his wife Nancy have resided in the Mission Trails area of San Diego since 1972. They have two children and one grandson, all residents in San Diego County."
