Production sound mixer Claude Riggins CAS passed away in January. Born in Marshall, Texas, Claude climbed the sound ladder in Los Angeles, working his way from cable person to boom op to production sound mixer at Universal Studios, where he was one of the first few people of color to become a sound mixer. Claude worked on many projects during his career including Alien Nation, V, Bionic Woman, The Incredible Hulk, Simon & Simon, and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. He received an Emmy nomination for his work on The Jacksons: An American Dream. Claude was always a positive presence on set and noted that his favorite set location was Hawaii for Magnum, P.I. Retiring after the series finale of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman in 1997, Claude enjoyed spending time with his family and was proud to see his great grandchildren working in the industry he loved. The CAS extends our condolences to Claude’s family, friends, and colleagues.
