Flags are flying at half-staff at state facilities across Indiana in honor of former Governor Otis "Doc" Bowen.
Bowen died Saturday at a northern Indiana nursing home. He was 95.
Bowen was Indiana’s Republican governor from 1973 to 1981.
He 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.
