SENATORS ALEXANDER AND CORKER STATEMENT

CLIFFORD DAVIS AND ODELL HORTON FEDERAL BUILDING

Posted on May 3, 2007

“I’m pleased the President has signed the legislation renaming the Federal Building in Memphis after both Clifford Davis and Odell Horton,” said Alexander. “Using the names of both men is a symbol of the transition of Memphis and across the South, and Odell Horton was a real pioneer during that time.” “I’m proud the President has signed this bill to honor an American who bravely and honorably served his country as a Marine, a judge, and a civil rights pioneer,” said Corker. “Adding Odell Horton’s name to the Clifford Davis Federal Building in Memphis will enshrine his legacy for future generations of Tennesseans and all Americans.”
