Remembering Perry Swisher, one of a vanishing breed

Perry Swisher
Here's Rocky Barker's obituary in the Idaho Statesman for Perry Swisher, who died this week at 88. When I was at the Post Register, I interviewed Perry several times. He always had great insights and intriguing stories, especially about Idaho Falls in the '40s, when it was Honky Tonk Central (if you can believe that!)

For all his experience in politics and public service, in his heart Perry was a newspaper man. His passing marks a big loss in the ranks of a vanishing breed.
