Peace activist Marv Davidov led the Honeywell Project in a decades-long campaign to halt the production of anti-personnel weapons by the Honeywell Corp. He was active in the civil rights movement since the 1960s. He died in January and is fondly remembered by the peace community. A “Celebration of the Life of Marv Davidov: Nonviolent Revolutionary” was held in the Woulfe Alumni Hall in the Anderson Student Center on the St. Paul campus of the University of St. Thomas.

Minneapolis Mayor, R.T. Rybak and the Saint Paul City Council proclaimed today to be Marv Davidov Day in their respective cities in recognition of Davidov’s six decades of commitment to peace and justice causes.
