McCulloch Square Sculpture No. 1

William McCulloch was born in Ohio in 1901 and early in his law and political career, settled in Piqua Ohio. In addition to practicing law, he served as a state representative and eventually speaker of the house in Columbus. As WWII broke out, he resigned as Ohio’s Speaker of the House and enlisted in the US Army at 40 years old. After the war, he was elected to the US Congress where he was instrumental in shaping enduring legislation such as the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the 1965 Voting Rights Act, and the 1968 Fair Housing Act. William McCulloch passed on 22 February 1980 and was interred at Arlington National Cemetery. In July 1990, the City of Piqua renamed this square in his honor.
