For the past 50 years, McCune was one of the area's biggest boosters. He maintained a law practice on N.E. 45th Street for the past five decades, gave legal advice and help to local businesses, tried to turn the Ave. into a pedestrian mall in 1969, and was a calming influence when rioting occurred following the 1970 Kent State shooting. When anyone wanted to find out about the "U" District, they were told to speak to Cal. While fully aware of the Ave.'s problems and the in-fighting among all the interest groups trying to make the Ave. a better place, he preferred to rejoice in all the district had to offer. He's no longer with us, but his legacy lives on.
As the library monitor, his job is to see to it that a proper atmosphere for study and research is maintained. "I've been telling people to be quiet for 16 years," he says. He also has foiled thefts, helped with the lost and found and stopped vandals in the act. "Once I caught some people throwing roosters off the third deck of the library," he says. "I feel education is so vital to people's lives. I am glad to contribute any way I can."
