He arbitrated labor disputes after his retirement in 1979. He had headed the NLRB legal staff in a region that included Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, West Virginia and Washington, D.C., since 1973.

Mr. Slaughter was an NLRB lawyer in Baltimore from 1946 until 1950, when he was named personnel and public relations director for the old Baltimore Transit Co. He maintained a private law practice and from 1956 until 1958 was assistant manager of industrial relations for the Maryland Shipbuilding and Drydock Co.

In 1958, he returned to the NLRB in Washington, then went to the Baltimore office in 1964.

Born in Atlanta, he was raised there and in Baltimore and Washington. He attended Boys Latin School here before graduating from the Landon School in Bethesda.

Mr. Slaughter was a graduate of Catholic University in Washington and attended the University of Virginia law school before he got a law degree in 1940 from George Washington University.

During World War II, he was an officer in the Counter Intelligence Corps with the 9th Army in Europe. Later, he commanded what is now the 214th Military Intelligence Company (Counter Intelligence), a reserve unit in Baltimore. He retired from the reserves with the rank of lieutenant colonel.

During retirement, he was a member of several organizations, including the Sons of Confederate Veterans, the St. George's Society and the Maryland State Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, in which he served as president.

Services were set for 11 a.m. today at the Mitchell-Wiedefeld Funeral Home, 6500 York Road, Rodgers Forge.

After graduation, he worked for Baltimore Aircoil Co., building air conditioners, then for United Parcel Service as a driver before joining the fire department six years ago.

He was stationed at Truck Company 10 in Jacobsville at the time of his death.

"He was devoted to two things -- his family and his job," said David Devilbiss, a 17-year veteran of the county Fire Department.
