Fred Larry Sprenger was born July 4, 1941, and settled in Southern California after a tour of duty in the United States Air
Force. He worked as an insurance consultant and broker but was also an active supporter of gay political causes at all levels
of government. Most prominently in the mid-1980s, he sat as the co-chair of the Municipal Elections Committee of Los Angeles,
a political action committee dedicated to the advancement of gay, lesbian, and women's rights. Sprenger wielded his power
as MECLA co-chair to gain admittance as a member of the Los Angeles City/County AIDS Task Force and as a consultant to AIDS
Project Los Angeles.
