— 1931 - 2007 —

An Atlantic City native, he served in the Army's 584th Medical Corp during the Korean War. He attended the New Jersey College of Commerce, Atlantic Community College and the New York Institute of Technology. He was one of five Blacks to integrate the fire department and to promote the advancement of its minority members. Hollingsworth was one of the first captains to command an integrated fire station, retired from the fire department at the rank of Deputy Chief, and then became the third Black elected City Commissioner. He served as president of the Atlantic City Branch of the NAACP for 24 years and was a State Board member. As president, he successfully spearheaded several campaigns of change in the city, most notably, the drive to change the form of government from commission to council. The former Chairman of the Atlantic City Municipal Utilities Authority also hosted several local radio shows and is a member of St. James AME Church.

[Seal of the] City of Atlantic City, Incorporated March 1854.
