Harry died of a heart attack last night in the hospital. Good guy, Wallace mining guy who was a true ZAG. Not too many leaves left on the tree up in Wallace.

Many said Harry was instrumental in saving Gonzaga from financial armageddon in the late 60s/early 70s.

I was a student regent at GU from 93-95. Harry was always a class act on the Board of Trustees. He also hosted us every year at his place on Lake Coeur D'Alene--we'd head over after the summer joint meeting of the boards of Regents and Trustees at the Coeur D'Alene resort.

He and Fr. Coughlin were tight. Ditto Sladich. Kind of ironic that Sladich and Magnuson pass away so close to one another.
