OSCARS & "Charlie Star Trek" Washburn

In case you're watching the Oscars today, startrek.com reports that the program's memorial reel of film industry people who passed away in the past year will feature Charles C. Washburn, aka "Charlie Star Trek". Article here.

Below is what I posted when I read about Mr. Washburn's death last April (and an event that Trektoday never even mentioned).

Charlie was reportedly the first-ever African-American to be a 2nd Assistant Director in Hollywood, in 1967. Charlie worked on Star Trek and four episodes of TNG amongst many other TV series.
