Elmer Cerin

Elmer Cerin, an attorney in private practice, attended the vigil every weekday for several years, passing out leaflets on the sidewalk and engaging passersby in conversation. One reporter wrote, “Elmer distributes [leaflets] with more enthusiasm than news-hawkers have demonstrated in years…Day after day, in all kinds of weather…” Cerin died in 1995.
