In Memoriam: George Slover

George Slover Jr. passed away on Oct. 31, 2020. He was 93.   

Mr. Slover was born in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania in 1926 and spent his youth in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and Knoxville, Tennessee. After serving in the U.S. Navy during WW II, he attended Harvard Law School and served as Editor of the Harvard Law Review

Mr. Slover practiced law for more than 40 years with the same firm, Carrington, Johnson & Gowan, later known as Johnson, Bromberg & Leeds. He was a member of the Texas State Bar Committee on Revision of Corporation Law and a principal author of the Texas Limited Partnership Act. His accomplishments included leading legal work to acquire the land for Texas Stadium, home to the Dallas Cowboys for 38 seasons.  

Mr. Slover was an ALI member for over 50 years. His son George P. Slover reflected on their shared membership saying, "One of the pleasures -- for both my father and me -- of my being an ALI member myself for the past 8+ years has been to see his name and mine side by side in the members directory."

In addition to his long and respected legal career, Mr. Slover was a loving and beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, mentor and role model to many.
