S. Hugh Dillin, 91, who during four decades as a federal judge oversaw the desegregation of schools in Indianapolis, died Monday in Cambridge, Mass. The cause of death was not announced.
In 1971, Dillin ordered the Indianapolis Public Schools to accelerate desegregation of its staff and some schools. Two years later, he ordered the busing of pupils within Indianapolis Public School boundaries to schools in surrounding townships. That busing continued until Dillin approved an agreement in 1998 to phase out the busing of students to suburban schools.
