John T Corrigan detail.JPG

A Memorial statue to 35 year Cuyahoga County Prosecutor John T. Corrigan. Corrigan spent over 50 years of his 91 year life devoted to service of the American people and the people of Cleveland as a soldier, senator, and prosecutor. His statue wears a plain, American-cut business suit with a pocket square and full Windsor-knotted tie. Characteristically 50's thick frame glasses and a leather briefcase complete his professorial look. He stands, without a pedestal, two feet on the ground just like the viewer. His open mouth denotes that he is captured mid-sentence, and his mild-mannered gestures show his professional finesse.

Corrigan was a World War II veteran who lost his right eye in the Battle of the Bulge. A graduate of St. Ignatius high school, John Carroll University, and Case Western Reserve University (all Cleveland schools) Corrigan devoted his entire life to the protection and safety of the public.
