George H. Dowell Retired lawyer

September 19, 1992

George H. Dowell, retired partner in a Baltimore law firm, died Monday at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center after a stroke.

A memorial service for the 83-year-old Roland Park resident will be conducted at 11 a.m. today at Broadmead, the retirement community at 13801 York Road in Cockeysville, where he had lived for nearly a decade.

He was a partner for many years at Wright, Robertson and Dowell but retired nearly 10 years ago, after a merger, as a partner in the firm then known as Wright and Parks.

An expert on corporate law and employee benefits, he served as a consultant for a time after his retirement to the firm, which is now Wright, Constable and Skeen.

The Baltimore native was a graduate of Boys' Latin School, the Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland Law School, where he was made a member of the Order of the Coif.

Fond of fishing on the Chesapeake Bay and travel, he was a member of L'Hirondelle Club and the Mount Washington Club and was a fan of lacrosse and other sports.

Mr. Dowell is survived by his wife, the former Mary Powell; a son, Dr. George H. Dowell Jr. of St. Louis, Mo.; a daughter, Mary Gardner Dowell Chessman of Portola Valley, Calif.; six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
