Memorial service

Lucille Maurer, Maryland's first woman treasurer and state legislator, who died June 18, will be honored at 7 p.m. July 18 at a memorial service in the auditorium of the Inn and Conference Center of the University of Maryland University College.

The center is at University Boulevard and Adelphi Road in College Park.

During her 16 years as a legislator, Ms. Maurer was scarcely known outside political circles. But inside the State House, she was respected for her keen understanding of state finances and her statewide perspective on budget issues.

Ms. Maurer was widely appreciated around the capital for her work crafting the complicated formula that has been used for two decades to determine the amount of state education aid each county receives -- a formula known as Lee-Maurer, for Ms. Maurer and the late Blair Lee III.
