Mac McClure was in real estate and insurance, and had an office in north Birmingham and later in Homewood, a suburb of Birmingham. He and his wife, Bess, lived in Norwood on 25th and 14th Street until they moved to the Edgewood area of Homewood, on Edgewood Blvd.
UNCLE MAC WAS A FAVORITE, a very sweet and special man. He was known and recognized with fondness by everyone downtown at the Jefferson County Courthouse in Birmingham. One thing he loved to do was to take young couples to the Courthouse to buy their marriage license. (I know he took Bill Mylius and I, and it was so much fun! VSM) Their house was always open to family.
Bill and Jimmy Walker recently spoke of Uncle Mac and Aunt Bess, and how much Mac & Bess loved to have them come by - even with their dates! They would go over to the house and help them set up the tree for Christmas; make fudge with Aunt Bess, and share a glass of wine with them. Mary Alice Miles said her brothers also used to take their dates by Mac and Bessie's, as they were always welcomed! One of her brothers now has a grandchild who was named "Mac".
According to a friend, M. F. Douglass III, (823-3047) who sent a note regarding "MR. MAC"...."he used to show us all kinds of tricks, slights of hand, etc. He could also write ambidextrously, i.e. with either hand, and it was very legible. He could also "mirror write"!!"
Aunt Bess was a warm and funny woman, who sang in the choir and worked very hard for All Saint's Episopal Church in Homewood.
They are buried next to each other at Elmwood Cemetery, beside Robert and Helen McClure.
