Gary L. Anderson
Gary L. Anderson is a renowned and lauded portrayer of legendary attorney Clarence Darrow. Anderson tours year round as America’s only full-time Darrow Portrayer.
This is the return of Clarence Darrow as legal warrior, returning to engage our justice system in a presentation that trembles with inescapable timeliness. Revisit with one of the most mesmerizing icons in American history.
Mr. Anderson is the CEO of The Clarence Darrow Foundation.
Mr. Anderson will be joined by Judy Besser, great granddaugher of Clarence Darrow, who will read a letter from Darrow to his daughter, Judy’s grandmother.
Coffee and rolls will be served. (The Darrow Bridge is behind the Museum of Science and Industry: Driving south on Lake Shore Drive, pass the light at 57th
Drive and turn right at the next light [Science Drive]. You will come almost immediately to Columbia Drive. If you turn left and follow Columbia Drive there is
parking near the bridge. Or, if you prefer, you may park near the OmniMax Theater and walk south & west to the bridge. Parking is only free by the bridge.)
