Funeral for Corman to Be in Virginia

January 13, 2001|NEDRA RHONE

Funeral services for former San Fernando Valley Rep. James C. Corman will be held Wednesday in Virginia.

Corman died Dec. 30, after suffering a stroke.

Corman, a Democrat, represented the 21st Congressional District from 1961 to 1981, championing civil rights and welfare reform legislation.

After his defeat by Republican Bobbie Fiedler, Corman donated his congressional files to the Urban Archives Center for faculty, student and public research at Cal State Northridge.

The Corman family has asked that memorial donations on behalf of Corman be made to the center.

The money will be used to complete the indexing and preservation of Corman's papers, said Tony Gardner, curator of special collections at the center.

Checks made out to the CSUN Foundation, with a note indicating "Corman Gift," may be mailed to: Urban Archives Center, University Library-CSUN, 1811 Nordhoff St., CA 91330-8329.

The funeral, with internment to follow, will be at 9 a.m. in Ft. Meyer Chapel at Arlington National Cemetery. A memorial service in the Valley is planned for late February.
