A memorial service for former Maryland legislator Clarence M. Mitchell III, who died Thursday at age 72, will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday at Sharp Street Memorial Church, Dolphin and Etting streets. The family hour begins at 3 p.m.

Mr. Mitchell, who became the nation's youngest black legislator when he was elected to the Maryland House of Delegates at age 22, helped steer a sweeping desegregation measure through the General Assembly.

He was elected to the Maryland Senate in 1966 and served there through 1986.
