It’s the sense of unity among the crowd gathered to support equal rights and the speakers’ calls to action that’s left a lasting impression on Tucson residents who attended the 1963 March on Washington.
Jack Vaughn - a Golden Gloves champion, the second director of the Peace Corps and ambassador to Panama and Colombia - died Monday at his Tucson home under hospice care for an aggressive cancer. He was 92.
Vaughn, a former boxer, stayed in shape by shadow boxing and running in place into his 90s, according to his wife. During a long and distinguished career, he also served as U.S. ambassador to Colombia and Panama.
