REPORT

OF THE

COMMITTEE ON LEGAL BIOGRAPHY

To the Colorado Bar Association:

Your Committee on Legal Biography regrets to report the death of Henry M. Teller, William H. Bryant, and Charles W. Franklin.

At the last meeting of the Association, the death of Chauncey W. Blackmer was reported, but as data for a sketch of his life was not then available, Mr. Blackmer's biography is now submitted, together with memorials of the lives of Henry M. Teller and Charles W. Franklin.

Your committee is disappointed in being unable to read at this time Mr. Bryant's biography, but will have it in the Secretary's hands within a day or two, so that it may be printed with the proceedings of this meeting. Respectfully submitted,

ROBERT S. GAST,

Chairman.
