Notorious police commissioner in Birmingham, Alabama who was a staunch segregationist. Ordered use of dogs and fire hose water streams against civil rights demonstrators in 1963. This, ironically, may have hastened the passage of America's Civil Rights Act of 1964. Also served in the state legislature. In 1938, he was a candidate for Governor of Alabama.
