Walter Diehl served as International President of the IATSE from 1974 through 1986.   He retired from the position on February 22, 1986.   He continued to be an active member of the Executive Board of the IATSE until the time of his death.  His concern for the rank and file was demonstrated by the many innovations brought about during his tenure - Ecumenical Memorial Service, Fifty-Year Scrolls, Honorary Gold Cards and International President’s Award.    Brother Diehl’s courageous leadership and compassion for his fellow IA members characterized his long career with the Alliance.

He passed away on August 26, 1991.
