EWING, ANNE D. (ANNE DRAYTON HEUSER RADLOW) Nov. 19, 1930 to April 11, 2011 Beloved by family and friends, Anne was a warm, loving person who used her spunk, intelligence, and organizing ability to make the world a better place. Born in Wytheville, Va. to Fredric Randolph Massillon Heuser and Cora Evelyn Anderson Heuser. At age 20 she joined the civil rights movement in the segregated South. She earned a B.A. in botany at College of William and Mary and M.S. at University of Tennessee. She married Robert Radlow in l957, and bore two children while doing research at Penn State University. Moving to San Diego in 1968, she was a Research Fellow at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and later an Environmental Planner for County of San Diego for 20 years, directing California's largest environmental impact study projects. Through the National Organization for Women (NOW), she forced California schools to eliminate sexism and racism in textbooks, and fiercely challenged the Catholic Church on women's abortion rights. She then founded the San Diego's National Women's Political Caucus (NWPC) in 1978. When her marriage ended in 1980, she chose the name Anne Dungan Ewing from her family tree. Anne was the President of the Torrey Pines Association and San Diego Independent Scholars (1997 - 2000). She was inducted into the San Diego County Women's Hall of Fame (2005). She is survived by her son Andrew Radlow of Orinda, CA and daughter Myra Radlow of Irvine, CA and their collective three children. A celebration of her life will be held at 1:00 p.m., Sunday, May 1st, at the UCSD Faculty Club. Memorial gifts may be made to Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest, 1075 Camino del Rio South, San Diego, CA 92108 or at plannedparenthood.org.
