March 13, 1947: The Sentinel publishes the obituary of former Chief Deputy City Atty. Bert McDonald, the first African American to serve in that position.
An April 23, 1964, L.A. Confidential column in the Sentinel by Stanley G. Robertson, headlined: “Do You Remember When? On the 1930s” said:
Locally, two Negroes now deceased, Bert McDonald and Fred Roberts, were the people you had to see to get anything done on a racial basis and the city boasted one of the most corrupt administrations any major American city ever had. Everyone from the mayor and chief of police on down as in on the “take,” while most of the town’s citizens had a hard time making both ends meet.
McDonald was a graduate of USC, the Sentinel said.
