Yale Law School will hold a memorial service for Burke Marshall '51 on Sunday, September 21, 2003, at 2:30 p.m., at the New Haven Lawn Club.

(The New Haven Lawn Club is located at 193 Whitney Avenue in New Haven. Directions to the club are available here.)

Marshall was a pivotal figure in the civil rights movement in the early 1960s, when he served as the head of the civil rights division in Robert Kennedy's Department of Justice, and later was a beloved member of the Yale Law School faculty. He was the Nicholas deB. Katzenbach Professor Emeritus of Law when he died in June 2003 at the age of 80.
