CELS Regrets the Passing of Allen “Tex” Harris

Tex played a crucial role in compiling and disseminating information about Argentinian human rights violations abroad during the last civilian and military dictatorship.

From 1977 to 1979, Harris served in the US Embassy in Buenos Aires. During this period, the diplomat received and documented thousands of first-hand accounts of disappearances and executions from relatives of the de facto regime’s victims.

Our thoughts go out to his family and loved ones, especially to his wife Jeanie.
