Memorial Resolutions

On February 3, 1875, the Dallas Bar Association met during court recess to pass a resolution of condolence for the death of Colonel H.H. Sneed, a fellow bar member, beginning a tradition of memorials that continues to the present day. The lawyers resolved that each member of the bar would wear “the usual badge of memory” (presumably a black armband) for thirty days.

Since that time Dallas Bar Association through its Memorial and History Committee has maintained this tradition of preserving the life and legacy of its members.

The Memorial Resolutions are adopted by the membership at the Dallas Bar Association Annual Meeting on the first Friday in November.

The Memorial Resolutions are given to the families of all deceased Dallas Bar members. Below please find a list of those Dallas Bar members who have passed away recently. A copy of the Memorial Resolution sent to their family may be viewed by clicking the name.
