From a contemporary press report:
On July 20, 2002 at his home in San Francisco, California, of natural causes, Henry Max Maggenti, a retired Air Force Major, restauranteur and political consultant during the Kenndey, Johnson and Nixon Administrations.
He was a World War II veteran and a Prisoner of War at Stalag Luft III and Sagan.
Major Maggenti lived and worked in Washington, D.C. through the 1960s as a political consultant and as co-founder and designer of the Georgetown restaurant “1789”. In the 1970s he lived and worked in Europe with a home base in Munich, Germany. He later became a public relations executive with
European American Bank in New York City until his retirement in 1985. After his retirement he returned to his home in San Francisco and became active in many community causes including the development of the Toy Museum, the preservation campaign to save the San Francisco Presidio and the Retired Officers Association.
He is survived by his ex-wife, Roberta Maggenti of San Francisco; his daughters, Maria Maggenti of New York City and Marjorie Maggenti of Oakland California, and many, many friends across the globe.
His ashes will be interred with Full Military Honors at Arlington National Cemetery on Tuesday, September 17, 2002 at 3 p.m.
Michael Robert Patterson was born in Arlington and is the son of a former officer of the US Army. So it was no wonder that sooner or later his interests drew him to American history and especially to American military history. Many of his articles can be found on renowned portals like the New York Times, Washingtonpost or Wikipedia.
