Memorial service for Mayor Frank Logue

NEW HAVEN — Former colleagues and friends of the late Mayor Frank Logue will join in a public memorial Saturday.

Mayor John DeStefano Jr. will lead the program celebrating Logue’s life. He served as New Haven’s mayor between 1975 and 1979 after three terms as alderman. Logue died Dec. 31 at 86 years old, leaving his wife, the Rev. Mary Ann Logue and three children.

Other participants will include Superior Court Judge Thayer “Ted” Baldwin Jr., sculptor Ann P. Lehman, Hugh Price, Logue’s human resources director who is now at Princeton University and the Brookings Institution, and Luis Alvarez, who led the Logue-founded National Urban Fellows program for many years.

City public school choirs will provide music and cantor Jonathan Gordon will lead those assembled in song. Light refreshments and a display of memorabilia will be available after the ceremony.

The public is welcome to attend the event, which will begin at 3 p.m. at City Hall, 165 Church St.
