The memorial service for former Florida Supreme Court justice and Hillsborough County administrator Fred Karl was this afternoon at the Tampa Convention Center. Karl died earlier this month.

His son, Fred Karl Jr. relayed a story about when his father represented West Volusia County in the Legislature at a time that the KKK was active and Governor Leroy Collins vetoed a bill that would have closed all public schools if the state enforced the U.S. Supreme Court’s Brown versus Board of Education decision to integrate schools.
