Sheriff Doug Harvey Given an Honorary Barber Award
Caption: Sheriff 'Honorary Barber': Sheriff Douglas J. Harvey examines a plaque which designates him an "honorary barber." The plaque, presented yesterday at the County Building, was given by Barbers Union Local 689. Harvey is defendant in a U.S. District Court suit in Detroit in which eight University students allege their constitutional rights were violated by haircuts given them during a brief stay in jail. Harvey is being sued for $200,000. The eight were arrested during a campus demonstration. Harvey promised to display the plaque in his office. Ypsilanti barber William Boatwright, who made the presentation, said the local's 94 barbers in the county "support Sheriff Harvey and his prevention of disease in the county jail."
