DALL Silver Anniversary Celebration

Nearly 120 celebrants -- members and former members of the Dallas Association of Law Librarians and their guests -- gathered at the historic Belo Mansion (the headquarters of the Dallas Bar Association) in downtown Dallas on the evening of Sunday, December 9, 2001, to mark the Silver Anniversary of DALL's founding in 1976. The Belo Mansion was beautifully decorated for the holidays making an exceptionally lovely backdrop for the festivities. The evening had many of the characteristics of a family reunion. It provided an opportunity for many present and past members of DALL to greet each other, renew the ties of friendship, and reminisce.

A buffet dinner was served in the ballroom of the Belo after which a program was presented. The program, presided over by John Luther Adams, Chair of the DALL Silver Anniversary Committee, included remarks by Jeannine Irwin, President of DALL; Jim Hambleton, former President of DALL, who read a letter from Barbara Bintliff, President of the American Association of Law Libraries commending DALL on its milestone anniversary; Mark Shank, President of the Dallas Bar Association; Joan Jarosek, Chair of the Union List Committee, who announced that the electronic edition of DALL's Union List would soon be released; and Elise Keller, First Vice-President and the President-Elect of DALL for 2002-2003, who concluded the speeches with a rousing call to embrace the future.

A special portion of the program was given over to honoring DALL's Presidents. Fourteen of DALL's Presidents were present: The roll of past Presidents was read aloud and each of the Presidents in attendance was presented with a Commemorative Book containing a history of DALL.

In addition, special recognition was given to Lexis-Nexis and Westlaw for co-sponsoring the evening, and to John R. Mara Law Books for underwriting the publication of the Commemorative Book.
