Clarence Darrow Celebration Free

When: Sat., March 13 2010

The Clarence Darrow Commemorative Committee hosts this annual gathering to honor the memory of the famed “attorney for the damned”—defender of hard cases from privileged murderers Leopold & Loeb to evolution teacher John Scopes—who reputedly promised on his death bed in 1938 that his ghost would haunt the Jackson Park lagoon. This year’s program includes a tribute to committee cofounder Leon Despres and a symposium featuring Darrow impersonator Gary Anderson.
