To the Editors of The Crimson:

We of Local 26 at Harvard have suffered a tragic loss. Our Union Brother Sherman Holcombe has passed away. Brother Sherman stood by us and stood for us. We are together today and have won the gains we have won: because Brother Sherman was one of us. He united us both Black and White, even in the face of the ugly prejudice in society. He was an advocate of human rights, our rights, and set a precedent of standing up for our rights. When the pressure came down on all of us he bore the brunt of it to the extent of being fired. We united around Brother Sherman then because we know that he was part of us and he was taking on the attack meant for us all. Today we feel sadness in our hearts because part of us has passed away.
