Earl Warren

Sacramento It seemed like a wonderful idea at the time: Honor a great California governor with a small monument -- one that could bring a smile to the most jaded politician or apolitical tourist. But the idea has been quietly dropped, the victim of an unhealed wound. Earl Warren was not just a great governor. He was California's most popular governor, the only one elected three times.

November 23, 2003 | Jim Newton
There is no one way to govern California, nor is there one type of governor. Ronald Reagan was ideologically forceful but softened his politics with charm and pragmatism. Pat Brown was a builder, popular for much of his tenure with Republicans as well as Democrats. George Deukmejian proved that it was possible to be elected twice without a hint of charisma.

John Balzar (Commentary, July 31) points to some of California's problems. But one should not be overly nostalgic for the past. To be sure, we had some great, far-sighted leaders, such as California Govs. Hiram Johnson, Earl Warren and Pat Brown. But California's urban and fiscal problems of today are legacies of an earlier, lobbyist-dominated leadership that was apathetic to our inevitable population explosion and that failed to deal with predictable deficiencies, such as transportation, education and other social ills.

Edgar Patterson, 89, former driver to Earl Warren who helped shape the justice's views on race relations. Patterson befriended Warren when the politician was California attorney general. After Warren was elected the state's governor, he tapped Patterson, a state police officer, to be his driver. Historians have attributed Warren's early interest in segregation to his talks with Patterson, who told him about Sacramento stores and restaurants that refused to serve blacks.

From 1940 through 1970, the official documents came out every two years or so, bound appropriately in red. The reports of the California Senate fact-finding subcommittee on un-American activities meticulously laid out the supposed activities of Communist Party members, sympathizers, fellow travelers and front organizations. In its later years, the subcommittee targeted student activists, civil rights groups and labor unions.

I have a letter from my old friend John Weaver, reminding me that Tuesday will be the centenary of Earl Warren's birth. It is not likely, in this moment of triumph for George Bush and Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, that any celebration will be raised in memory of Justice Warren. Weaver is the author of "Warren: The Man, the Court, the Era," a definitive biography of a man I consider the man of the century.

It must be hard for a governor to concentrate on mundane details of his job when there's a war on. Especially for Pete Wilson, just back from the U.S. Senate, where he was privy to top-level briefings as a member of the conventional forces, nuclear forces and manpower subcommittees of the Armed Services Committee. He's trying. Last Friday, he attempted to promote a policy statement on growth management, and focus attention on his new planning adviser, attorney Richard P.
