Biography

American social campaigner, an international peace activist who created the World Passport, a travel document originally based on Article 13(2), Universal Declaration of Human Rights and on the concept of world citizenship.

Previously Davis worked as a Broadway stage actor (with a stint as Danny Kaye's understudy) and served as an American bomber pilot in World War II. He was a devoted World Federalist, although a consistent critic of the World Federalist Movement.

In 2012, Davis sent Wikileaks founder and refugee of the Ecuadorean embassy in London Julian Assange a World Passport. Only weeks before he died, Davis sent a passport to whistleblower Edward Snowden in Moscow in care of the Russian authorities.

Davis died in South Burlington, Vermont, on 24 July 2013, aged 91.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from "The World Citizen" by John allen Gay, National Interest, 12 Aug. 2013 [1]: "Garry Davis’ stump speech in his 1988 campaign for the presidency of the United States—he was running on the ticket of the World Citizen Party—begins: 'Fellow Earthlings: I want you to know from the outset that I am a Leo with Gemini rising and the moon in Aries.'"

A speculative time of 12:45am gives Gemini rising and Aries Moon.
