Huey's initial involvement in our campaign to restore Hetch Hetchy took place in 2004, when he agreed to co-author the foreword of the Environmental Defense Fund's Paradise Regained report with Doug Wheeler. Both gentlemen readily agreed that the bipartisan pairing was a good idea, but differences in writing style were not overcome until the deadline drew near - causing a bit of anxiety among the report authors.
Huey and Doug also published an editorial opinion in the San Francisco Chronicle to support Restore Hetch Hetchy's ballot measure in 2012, and were part of a group sponsoring an amicus brief for our legal challenge in 2017.
As longtime supporter of Restore Hetch Hetchy, Huey was also often a fixture at our annual dinners. One year, he did grumble about missing a Warriors' game - at least until we offered him a glass of Restoration Red.
Huey will be missed, by Restore Hetch Hetchy and by so many others who benefit from his impressive legacy.
