One of Cincinnati's most storied political figures has died. According to family, William L. Mallory Sr. died peacefully Tuesday morning following an illness. He was 82.
Former Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory says his father could find inspiration in almost anything.
"He would be inspired by a thought, by a vision, by a natural landscape, and this would cause him to take on something new," says Mallory. "Sometimes it was poetry, sometimes it was legislation, sometimes it was activism... he was a deeply spiritual man."
