    198 Reasons to Celebrate: Honoring Wisconsin Lawyers in Practice 50 Years

    Congratulations to 198 members who entered the profession in 1967. The State Bar is hosting an event in May to honor their 50-year milestone as Wisconsin lawyers.
    honorees stand as their names are called

    During a program honoring last year's class of 1966, honorees stand as their names are called by Chief Justice Roggensack. Last year's class included such notables as Gov. Tommy Thompson. Read more.

    March 1, 2017 – In 1967, stamps cost 5 cents, and a gallon of gasoline was 31 cents. We cheered as coach Vince Lombardi and quarterback Bart Starr led the Green Bay Packers to a 35-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in the first-ever Super Bowl (then called the AFL-NFL World Championship Game).

    We explored a new level in popular music with the Beatles album “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” watched actors Burt Ward and Adam West in “Batman” on television, and Paul Newman in “Cool Hand Luke” in movie theaters (ticket prices were $1.22), and mourned soul artist Otis Redding, who died in a plane crash on Lake Monona in Madison.

    We witnessed the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, and the adoption of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (on succession of the presidency). Thurgood Marshall became the first African-American justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.

    And, in 1967, these 198 lawyers (listed below) were admitted to practice in Wisconsin.

    Join the State Bar of Wisconsin in honoring members who this year reach their 50-year milestone in the legal profession. If you’re one of our honorees, expect an invitation by mail in early April for a celebratory luncheon May 10 in Delafield.

    If you know of members who were admitted to the State Bar in 1967 whose names are missing from this list, please contact Beth Drake at (608) 250-6171 or (800) 444-9404, ext. 6171.
