Walter Young was campaign chairman and president of the Pasadena Community Chest for over a decade, raising funds from local businesses to distribute to community projects. The City of Pasadena awarded him the Arthur Noble Award for his civic contributions in 1958. Among his civic activities, his family reports that Young took pride in his efforts to bring about the desegregation of Pasadena schools.
