1914 - 1981


The man we honor and
here remembered served his
country in the time of war,
his state in time of peace.

In his beloved Charleston,
he was the preeminent Trial
Lawyer of the 20th Century, yet his
reach was broader than the law.

With his wit and charm,
he was a loyal friend.

With his genuine compassion,
he was an eloquent counselor.

With his tenacious courage,
he was a lifelong champion
of equal justice.

With his generous heart, he made
us seem better than we really are.

And as he dared always to seek
the common good, we here
commemorate the genius and quiet
dignity of a man who led us well
beyond our due.

Born; September 4, 1914
Died May 8, 1981

His life was gentle,
And the elements
So mixed in him that
Nature might stand up
And say to all the world
"This was a man!"
