George K. McKinney Omega Chapter

June 22, 2012|By Frederick N. Rasmussen, The Baltimore Sun

George K. McKinney, who was the first African-American to be appointed U.S. marshal for the District of Maryland, and whose career in federal service spanned more than four decades, died June 17 of leukemia at his Northwest Baltimore home. He was 77.

“It is with deep sadness that I acknowledge the passing of my dear friend, retired U.S. marshal George K. McKinney,” Rep. Elijah E. Cummings said in a statement. “George held the distinct honor of being the only African-American appointed U.S. marshal to two different jurisdictions by two different presidents.”
