We have received word that William and Celia Pomeroy, both in their 90s, are now in a nursing home in England where they receive 24-hour care. William Pomeroy covered many international stories for the People’s Weekly World and its predecessors. He wrote several books, including “The Forest, A Personal Record of the Huk Guerrilla Struggle in the Philippines.” It was during this struggle in the 1940s that William met Celia, who became his lifelong comrade and spouse. Pomeroy was a U.S. citizen, but he and Celia were forced to live in exile by the U.S. government because they were Communists and participants in the Huk struggle.
Messages can be sent to the Pomeroys at this address:
