(1930-1995)


Family man, attorney, civic and church leader, mentor, lover of life, thinker, stargazer

Continuing the family tradition, Charles H. Dorsey made the fight for justice his lifelong vocation. As a young man, he fought for civil rights with the NAACP and other groups. His choice of a career in law reflected a passion for righteousness which infected those around him.

As Deputy Director (1969-74) and Executive Director (1974-95), he led the expansion of the Legal Aid Bureau as a statewide law firm committed to quality representation of those in need. In 1992, fulfilling the vision of "a permanent home for the Bureau," Dorsey oversaw the construction of these Baltimore quarters.

Among the many state and city boards he chaired are the State Board of Law Examiners, Associated Catholic Charities and Maryland Project Equality. Charles Dorsey was recognized for his leadership in the national struggle to secure adequate funding and respect of legal services programs across the country.

Seasons change. Life is renewed. Although it seems that Charles Dorsey has left this world much too soon, his untiring spirit inspires those still in the fight for justice.
