W.H. Whiteford

March 20, 1992

W. Hamilton Whiteford, a founder of the law firm that is now known as Whiteford Taylor and Preston, died Monday in his sleep at the age of 88 in the home of a friend while on vacation in Naples, Fla.

A memorial service for Mr. Whiteford, who lived on Roland Avenue, will be held at 2 p.m. April 2 at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, Charles Street and Melrose Avenue.

He retired in 1975 as a partner in the firm that he helped found in 1940, but he remained active with the firm until a little more than five years ago.

The Baltimore native was a graduate of City College who received a bachelor's degree from the University of Maryland in 1926 and his law degree from the university in 1930.

His wife, the former Lydia Burnham, died in 1982.

He is survived by three sons, Richard C. Whiteford of Sherwood Forest, David H. Whiteford of Mechanicsburg, Pa., and William B. Whiteford of Baltimore; nine grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.

The family suggested memorial contributions to the American Cancer Society.
