  1. Burton Milo Reynolds Sr. was born in Michigan in 1909. He moved to Florida after WW II. In the late 40’s he became a Riviera Beach patrolman and eventually its chief of police. In 1956 he quit and went into construction. Willis V. McCall was born in Lake County Florida in 1909. In 1945 he became the sheriff of the most segregated and racially violent county in the state of Florida. He served as Lake County’s sheriff for 28 years, from 1945 through 1972. Which of these men would most closely resemble the stereotypical southern sheriff?

  2. Well, I would be disqualified to chose a “stereotype” for 2 reasons. 1) I am from this “monolithic” region and 2) I know quite a few sheriffs and sheriff’s deputies. So, it would be hard for me to make a standardized conception of a Southern sheriff. (Wink, wink.) 🙂
