Like many other obits, that of Harry LoGiudice is highly sanitized. It paints him as an ordinary, nice guy interested in photography and the Red Sox etc. No mention was made of his more controversial activities. Harry (once known as Henry Logiudice) first came to my attention around the start of 1975, when I saw angry letters in a local paper written in response to one of his. The letters section had a headline: "Readers reply to anti-Semitic letter." Based on the content of the letters it appeared that Harry praised General Brown for opposing the pro-Israel lobby, and bemoaned the power of that lobby. Frankly I can relate to that, but not everything he wrote.

In a letter written to someone several years ago, Harry acknowledged that he wrote the controversial letters "back then." Undaunted by the negative feedback, he kept writing letters to the editor for decades. There's no doubt Harry was courageous, and I don't see why his obit didn't say something like "Harry had the courage of his convictions and freely expressed his views in newspapers, regardless if what others thought."

Harry got in hot water with others besides the pro-Israel types. One day I saw a letter in The Hartford Courant, part of which went "Hey Henry, how'd you like to serve out the rest if my enlistment?" It was in response to a letter by Harry criticizing soldiers who don't obey their superior officers. Something like that.

When Harry wrote a letter to someone several years ago, he stated "the ball game seems to be over." By then he was 89 and knew he hadn't much longer to live. As a Red Sox fan, he used a ball game as a metaphor for his life. Btw Harry was predeceased by his wife Patricia. RIP.

1925 - 2020 World Events

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Harry's lifetime.

In 1925, in the year that Harry J. LoGiudice was born, on November 28th, radio station WSM broadcast the Grand Ole Opry for the first time. Originally airing as “The WSM Barn Dance”, the Opry (a local term for "opera") was dedicated to honoring country music and in its history has featured the biggest stars and acts in country music.

In 1930, Harry was merely 5 years old when on August 6th, N.Y. Supreme Court Judge Joseph Crater went through papers in his office, destroyed some of them, withdrew all his money from the bank - $5,150, sold his stock, met friends at a restaurant for dinner and disappeared after getting into a taxi (or walking down the street - his friends' testimony later changed). His disappearance was reported to the police on September 3rd - almost a month later. His wife didn't know what happened, his fellow Justices had no idea, and his mistresses (he had several) said that they didn't know. While his disappearance was front page news, his fate was never discovered and after 40 years the case was closed, still without knowing if Crater was dead or alive.

In 1949, by the time he was 24 years old, comedian Milton Berle hosted the first telethon show. It raised $1,100,000 for cancer research and lasted 16 hours. The next day, newspapers, in writing about the event, first used the word "telethon."

In 1961, Harry was 36 years old when on April 17th, about 1,000 CIA trained Cuban exiles invaded Cuba with the intention of igniting a rebellion and overthrowing Castro. They were defeated within three days. Although the operation began under Eisenhower, Kennedy approved it and the operation, named the Bay of Pigs for the beach where they landed, was a humiliation for the United States.

In 1999, he was 74 years old when on January 1st, the Euro became the new official single currency of the eurozone. It was used by Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain and has since spread in use. Daily, over 337 million Europeans use the euro.
