Published: April 03, 2005

OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Evergreen says good-bye to a former Evergreen Trustee and life-long champion of education, civil rights and social justice. Frederick "Fred" Haley died Monday, April 4 at his home in Lakebay, following a brief illness. Haley served on The Evergreen State College Board of Trustees from 1991 through 1997. He is remembered at Evergreen for his integrity, his deep commitment to civil rights and his steadfast support of the college. His work at Evergreen is just one example from a long life in public service. He participated in the 1963 March on Washington and, as a member of the Tacoma School Board, fought for desegregation and to protect the civil rights of teachers. In his professional life, he was CEO of the candy manufacturing company Brown & Haley. Haley was 92-years-old.
