The 75th anniversary of Clarence Darrow's death was observed Wednesday morning with a ritual wreath-tossing at the Darrow Memorial Bridge behind the Museum of Science and Industry.

Darrow was a leading member of the American Civil Liberties Union.

He was also an attorney best known for defending Chicago killers Leopold and Loeb back in the early 1920s.
