Memory Hold the Door
Columbia Ballroom C
Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center
Thursday, January 19, 5–6:30 p.m.

In 1958, the South Carolina Bar Association and the University of South Carolina School of Law Faculty established the memorial repository and endowment fund, Memory Hold the Door. The lawyers remembered through Memory Hold the Door represent a true honor roll of the legal profession, selected by their peers as best exemplifying the qualities of integrity, professionalism and skill required of the bench and bar.

The induction ceremony for this prestigious group is open to all Convention attendees, spouses and guests. After the ceremony, please join us for the President’s Welcome Reception at the Columbia Museum of Art.

Thank you to the South Carolina Bar Foundation for its contribution to the USC Educational Foundation in honor of those memorialized.
