Kudos to Nick Welsh and Adri Davies for their story on Horace McMillan and his groundbreaking efforts on behalf of equal opportunities, particularly in housing, particularly in Santa Barbara. I moved here in 1980 from Illinois and heard quite a lot about how enlightened S.B. was, especially in comparison to backwaters like Illinois. Made me laugh then, now even more.
Now I am looking for schools, streets, buildings and bodies of water named in McMillan’s honor. So far no dice. But at least now we know him better.
