Area attorney Thomas A. Clure, the son of the namesake of Duluth's Clure Public Marine Terminal, has been appointed a Duluth Seaway Port Authority commissioner by the Duluth City Council.
Arthur M. Clure was also a Duluth attorney and a leader in generating political support for 1954 federal legislation to create the St. Lawrence Seaway. He was appointed in 1954 to the original Port Authority Board of Commissioners, but died in 1956, three years before the Seaway opened.
Thomas A. Clure is a shareholder of the Clure Eaton Law Office and practices in admiralty law as well as in corporate and business law and real estate development and financing. He has been licensed in Minnesota since 1963 and in Wisconsin since 1987.
Clure's appointment is for the balance of the late Thomas E. Grosser's term, or until October 2006. Grosser, who died March 18 of pancreatic cancer, had served as a port commissioner since February 1993 and had been elected Authority president for the past four years.
