judge was honored Monday for his lifelong contributions to the City of Cincinnati.
Judge William McClain was honored with a bronze plaque as appreciation for his
efforts to improve the quality of life and pave the way for African Americans
in the legal profession in Cincinnati.
Berry was the first black mayor of Cincinnati, and with Judge McClain being the
first black city solicitor, it just makes since to have them next to each other.
So it will be right next to the Ted Berry bust, the plaque will be, so they'll
be right next to each other, which I think is really, really appropriate," said Cincinnati City Council Member Yvette Simpson.
Judge McClain served as a judge and city
solicitor. He was also the first African American in the nation to hold such a
high municipal legal office.
He is now 100-years-old and still maintains an office at a local law firm.
