Howard was a friend and fellow student at Birmingham-Southern College. Even then, in the late 60’s, Howard’s gift for cartooning and capturing moments of decision about social justice were evident. After decades in separate orbits, we reconnected in early November this year. Both his sweetness and his incisive mind were altogether intact. He will be deeply missed.
