A San Francisco judge arrested as a young attorney for being
in a place where homosexuals gathered will be feted for civil
rights advocacy next Thursday.
San Francisco police arrested Herbert Donaldson at a 1965 Saturday
afternoon drag show fundraiser for the underprivileged.
Donaldson went on to become a civic leader, philanthropist, and
finally a judge appointed by Governor Jerry Brown in 1983.
He will be honored at the ACLU Foundation's Third Annual Frontline
Attorney Reception to advance the ACLU's LGBT civil rights advocacy.
The event will be held June 22 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in
offices of Covington and Burling, One Front Street.
