Remembering George Hibbard
Thank you so much for publishing the memorial notice for George Hibbard (In Memoriam, May 2012), and for making sure our family had copies. I’m wondering if you could publish in your next issue one slight correction. It is our fault as our original write-up of Dad’s accomplishments was incorrect. He left the Army as a major, not a captain. We have tried to get the correct information out there ever since, but not always successfully. I think Dad would have appreciated the correction. He was very proud of his military service.
When the World War II memorial was finished in Washington, D.C., and Dad was in his 90s, he visited it with my brother. He was very impressed. As they were leaving a young woman approached Dad and asked him, “Did you serve?” He said yes, and she replied, “Thank you for your service.” It meant a great deal to him.
Thanks so much for helping others to understand his life and career.
Jane Kuechle, Issaquah, Wash.
We Love Letters
The Bulletin welcomes letters. In general, letters should pertain to recent articles, columns or other letters and should be limited to 250 words. Other things to keep in mind:
Letters must be original and addressed to the Bulletineditor. We do not reprint letters addressed to other publications, to other individuals, to whom it may concern, etc. Preference is given to letters responding to letters to the editor, articles or columns recently published in the Bulletin.
Letters must be signed. Unsigned or anonymous letters will not be published. (There are exceptions. Inquire with the editor.) Letters may not promote individual products, services or political candidates. All letters must comply with the guidelines of Keller v. State Bar of California in that they must be germane to the purpose of regulating the legal profession or improving the quality of the legal services available to the people of Oregon.
Letters may be edited for grammatical errors, style or length, or in cases where language or information is deemed unsuitable or inappropriate for publication. Profane or obscene language is not accepted.
We strive to print as many letters as possible. Therefore, brevity is important, and preference will be given to letters that are 250 words or less. Letters become the property of the Oregon State Bar. Authors of rejected letters are notified by the editor.
Send letters to: Editor, OSB Bulletin, P.O. Box 231935, Tigard, OR 97281.
