Season 2: Episode 6: Morris Foote

Thursday, 30 March

On November 2, 1955, when 30-year-old Morris read on the front page of Boise's newspaper, the Idaho Statesman, that the police were rounding up and arresting gay men, he did the only thing he could think of. He ran. He didn't feel safe setting foot in Boise for the next 20 years. Visit our episode webpage for background information, archival photos, and other resources. Learn more about your ad choices.
