Deafened at age 3, Leo Latz (11/28/1914—1/22/2004) was placed in the Minnesota State Asylum for the Feeble-Minded, but was soon found to be only deaf, and transferred to the Minnesota School for the Deaf and graduated in 1935, having attained the rank of Eagle Scout. He graduated from Gallaudet College in 1940 and worked at a number of Washington and Ohio newspapers before settling in Minneapolis and working 38 years for the "Star-Tribune" as a compositor, Linotype operator, and proofreader. Active in bowling leagues, printers’ unions, and local Deaf organizations, he wrote articles for several Deaf publications.
This information is taken from the Minneapolis "Star-Tribune," January 24, 2004.
I'd like to contact his family and get information and photos for a biographical sketch in DEAF LIFE magazine.
