Anne Salinger Chasid of Laguna Hills, half-sister of Pierre Salinger, died April 10 at age 82.
Born Dec. 6, 1914, in Salt Lake City, Utah, she received a bachelor's degree in anthropology from UC Berkeley and a teaching certificate from Washington University in St. Louis, Mo., where she then taught in elementary schools. In 1942, she married Rabbi Saul B. Appelbaum.
Widowed in 1964, Chasid assisted her half-brother, Pierre Salinger, that year in his campaign for a U.S. Senate seat in California. In his memoirs, the former press secretary for President John F. Kennedy quotes his sister referring to a campaign visit to Orange County:
"I didn't know anything about Orange County, so I was very unsuspecting. We got there, the train stopped, and there were mean-faced people all over the place. They started throwing tomatoes and oranges and God knows what. They were so unkind."
