William Bryan McKesson
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 24, 1895
Death: Mar. 21, 1967

McKesson graduated from USC Law School, had been a deputy
county counsel and was active in several organizations involving juvenile justice, prior to taking the bench. When McKesson was appointed DA, the Los Angeles Examiner listed his plans to strengthen the office's Juvenile Bureau, to have only the "highest caliber men" handle the complaint department, and appoint more experienced prosecutors to handle preliminary hearings instead of using them as a training ground for young deputies.

McKesson served until 1964, when the fiscal year budget had grown to $3,261,760, more than triple the budget of ten years previous. The staff numbered 429, including 146 deputy district attorneys who prosecuted 54% of the felony cases in California.
