Honor for Torrens

March 25, 1997

A postscript on Gov. Pete Wilson's dismissal of Paul Torrens of the UCLA School of Public Health and two other distinguished public health leaders from the state's Tobacco Education and Research Oversight Committee:

The same day Wilson dumped Torrens, he (Torrens) was notified of receiving the Harvard School of Public Health's Alumni Award of Merit--one of three people to be recognized during the school's 75th anniversary. Seems like people who are up to Harvard's high standards aren't good enough to satisfy the governor.
