Walt Scott, former peace activist and pastor, dies
GRAND FORKS, N.D. - Sometime in the mid-1970s, the Rev. Walter Scott walked into the federal building in downtown Grand Forks, sat down and refused to leave.
The Herald’s Ryan Bakken, then a junior sports writer, was tapped to go find out why. Forty-some years later, he doesn’t remember what sparked Scott’s protest, but he recalls clearly how it ended.
