INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Gov. Mike Pence has directed that flags at state facilities across Indiana be flown at half-staff through next Saturday to honor former Governor Otis "Doc" Bowen.
Bowen died Saturday night at a northern Indiana nursing home. He was 95.
Pence also is asking Indiana businesses and residents to lower their flags to half-staff to honor Bowen for his service to the state and the nation.
Bowen was Indiana's Republican governor from 1973 to 1981. He also became secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 1985, taking charge of the federal government's response to the spread of AIDS after the Reagan administration had been criticized by activists for a slow initial response.
